Intense, exuberant, profound, Philip Roth was a towering figure of 20th-century literature. Sarah Churchwell pays tribute to the writer who died this week
“Sheer playfulness and deadly seriousness are my closest friends,” Philip Roth once said. “The redeeming value is not social or cultural reform, or moral instruction, but comic inventiveness. Destructive, or lawless, playfulness – and for the fun of it.” Characteristically, he italicised the word inventiveness; one might say that italicised inventiveness was Roth’s stock in trade. Over a career that spanned almost 50 years, he wrote 31 books, including an early effort mischievously titled The Great American Novel (1973).

Milwaukee police didn’t just assault a basketball player, they damaged the hopes young people of color have of a better life
Another day, another black man violently assaulted by five rogue police officers for the ever-increasing crime of BWB (breathing while black). This time it was NBA player Sterling Brown. In January, the Bucks rookie was confronted by Milwaukee police at Walgreens for a parking infraction, which resulted in a compliant Brown being wrestled to the ground, handcuffed, tased, arrested – and given a parking ticket. The recently released police body-cam footage was called “disturbing” by Milwaukee’s mayor. Particularly in a city that Bucks president Peter Feigin once called “the most segregated, racist place I’ve ever experienced in my life”. The officers involved have since been disciplined. Now what? Bygones?
