Playbill for The Plymouth Theatre-1971-"Unlikely Heroes 3 Philip Roth Stories"-6" X 9"-32 pages-theatre program. Philip Roth has been a prolific and celebrated writer of novels and short stories since Goodbye, Columbus, his debut collection of short fiction, earned him a National Book Award in 1959. The controversy over the sexual frankness of his third novel, Portnoy's Complaint (1969), made Roth a literary celebrity, a role he reluctantly embraced and used as fodder for more novels. Roth's themes involve Jewish-American identity, sex, shame and the role of the individual in contemporary society, and his novels are alternately bleak and hilarious. His alter ego, Nathan Zuckerman, appears in several of his books: 1974's My Life as a Man, 1979's The Ghost Writer and 1983's The Anatomy Lesson. His character David Kepesh is the protagonist of The Breast (1972), The Professor of Desire (1977) and The Dying Animal (2001), and Roth has also used his own name as the main character in mostly autobiographical works, including The Facts (1988), Deception (1990) and Operation Shylock (1993). Roth's many literary awards include the American Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, the PEN/Faulkner Award and the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for the 1997 work American Pastoral.The Playbill has been autographed on the front by Philip Roth...........BOTH PLAYBILL AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION..........................
