Salon is reporting, on the basis of an interview with a French magazine, that Philip Roth is putting down his pen as a novelist.

“To tell you the truth, I’m done,” Roth told the magazine, in the most definitive statement he has ever made about his future plans. “‘Nemesis’ will be my last book.”

Roth had hinted as much during at an appearance in 2011 at YIVO, but quickly claimed that it wasn’t true. Now, in fact, it seems that it is.
