Virtual Reality Check

Tried watching prime time lately? Olympians. Democrats. Tennis pros. Republicans. It's enough to drive us into the arms of a Great American Novelist – just in time for the release of Philip Roth's Indignation, which Esquire calls the author’s “latest novel about Ohio, Newark, sex, war, and guilt. Always guilt.” In conjunction with the release, Changing Hands hosts a live Indignation Day Webcast of an interview with Roth (pictured) by New York author Benjamin Taylor, who edited an upcoming edition of Saul Bellow's letters. Though Roth won't reach through the screen and personally inscribe your copy of Indignation, a limited number of signed first editions will be available.
