Yaddo Presents: The Secret Life of Literary Titan Philip Roth

Yaddo Presents:  The Secret Life of Literary Titan Philip Roth

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Patricia Volk and Benjamin Taylor lead an adventurous conversation on the love of books, the art of memoir—and the secret life of literary titan Philip Roth. 

“Philip Roth Revealed” a virtual cocktail hour takes place Wednesday, Nov. 18 and is part of Yaddo Variations, the artists’ colony national benefit series. 

Benjamin Taylor’s widely acclaimed books include the collected letters of Saul Bellow, an award-winning biography of Marcel Proust, and Here We Are: My Friendship with Philip Roth. 

Patricia Volk is the bestselling author of six volumes of fiction and nonfiction. Naming it a Best Book of the Year, NPR praised Shocked: My Mother, Schiaparelli and Me as “a brilliant and boisterous memoir that breaks new ground.”
