Novelist Philip Roth on death, getting older, etc.:

‘You think, That’s the end of it when your parents die. After that, you’re done. Nobody’s supposed to die anymore, right?’

—Claudia Roth Pierpont, “The Book of Laughter: Philip Roth and His Friends,” New Yorker, 10/7/13


‘Seventy-five; how sudden.’


‘Time runs out at a terrifying speed. It seems that it was just 1943.’

—Patricia Cohen, “Philip Roth, Provacateur, Is Celebrated at 75,” New York Times, 4/12/08
