Private Collection/Portal Painters/Bridgeman ImagesJonathan Wolstenholme: Shakespearean Scholar, 2003 Why do we have so many novels and films featuring writers and artists? Films abound—Amadeus, Picasso, Turner, Oscar Wilde, Neruda, Leopardi. In fiction we have, among others, Michael Cunningham’s Virginia Woolf in The Hours , Colm Tóibín’s Henry James in The Master . And now the English novelist Jo Baker has dramatized the war years of Samuel Beckett. What is the attraction?

Collected Nonfiction 1960-2013 When Philip Roth announced his retirement from literary fiction back in 2012, the reaction was mixed. For many, Roth is one of the last great surviving voices of 20th Century literature; John Updike and Saul Bellow are both unfortunately deceased, while Thomas Pynchon lives a reclusive existence and, while Don DeLillo is still alive and working, as is Paul Auster, these ‘Great American Authors’ of the 20th Century are growing fewer and further with each passing year. To others, however, Roth is...
