PHILIP ROTH's books are: Goodbye, Columbus (1959); Letting Go (1962); When She Was Good (1967); Portnoy's Complaint (1969); Our Gang (1971); The Breast (1972); The Great American Novel (1973); and My Life as a Man (1974). He is currently working on a group of essays that will probably be called Reading Myself and Others, and which deal, among other things, with some of his contemporaries—Bellow, Malamud—and the predicament of "fame." Since 1965 he has been on the English faculty of the University of Pennsylvania, where he teaches two courses in literature during the fall semester. In 1970 he was elected to the National Institute of Arts and Letters.
JOYCE CAROL OATES has recently published a collection of satiric academic stories, The Hungry Ghosts (Black Sparrow Press, 1974), and a collection of critical essays, New Heaven, New Earth: The Visionary Experience in Literature (Vanguard Press, 1974).
