Philip Roth: ‘To tell you the truth, I’m done’

News today that American author Philip Roth plans to retire. The 74-year-old author of 25 books says he wants nothing more to do with books. "I studied, I taught, I wrote, I read – to the exclusion of almost everything else, Enough is enough!" he told a magazine. "I no longer feel this fanaticism."
