Philip Roth Discusses 'Everyman'

Philip Roth's new novel is about a 71-year-old multi-divorced, successful advertising man who is facing his physical deterioration and approaching death -- without the aid of religion or philosophy. One reviewer called Everyman a "swift, brutal novel about a heartbreakingly ordinary subject."

Last year, Roth became the third living American writer to have his work published by the Library of Congress.
