Большое интервью с Филипом Ротом, который в 85 лет не пишет больше романов, а пересматривает классические фильмы, встречается с друзьями и отвечает на вопросы по электронной почте.

Похоже, он не очень любит Трампа: "No one I know of has foreseen an America like the one we live in today. No one (except perhaps the acidic H. L. Mencken, who famously described American democracy as “the worship of jackals by jackasses”) could have imagined that the 21st-century catastrophe to befall the U.S.A., the most debasing of disasters, would appear not, say, in the terrifying guise of an Orwellian Big Brother but in the ominously ridiculous commedia dell’arte figure of the boastful buffoon. How naïve I was in 1960 to think that I was an American living in preposterous times! How quaint!"
