“The problem [with Philip Roth] is literary: these caricatures reveal a lack of not only empathy, but curiosity….That’s why Brenda and the many other Jewish New Jersey women in his books, ostensibly so close to home, struck me as so unfamiliar. I didn’t know these women at all, because neither did he.”

DARA HORN, from “What Philip Roth Didn’t Know About Women Could Fill a Book,” the New York Times, May 25, 2018.
