Personal Fact of Philip Roth

An academician and a Pulitzer Prize winning novelist, Philip Roth is a name to reckon with, in the list of US writers of his generation. He is, by far, one of the most acclaimed and awarded writers. Interestingly, unlike others who slogged to get themselves enlisted amongst the prestigious writers of the generation, Roth jumped to fame with his very first venture, Goodbye Columbus. What’s more, he even bagged a National Book Award for the same.

While his novels are based on different genres and highlight the different aspects of life and nature, one thing that binds all of them and typecasts his writing is the presence of a strong fictional autobiographical character who through his proceedings explicitly determines the difference between reality and fiction.

While his first novella established him as a coveted writer, it was his fourth publication that cemented his position in the world of publication. Winner of two National Book Awards, three PEN/Faulkner Awards, one Pulitzer Prize and a long list of other prestigious awards, he is known for bringing to life the character of Nathan Zuckerman, his alter-ego in many of his novels and novellas.
