Philip Roth
Film Outtake: Obscenity

Philip Roth on obscenity. While it’s not all too uncommon for a writer to turn to the obscene from time to time, Roth made it a sort of trademark — especially in his book, Portnoy’s Complaint (1969).

Philip Roth: Unmasked premieres nationally Friday, March 29 on PBS (check local listings)
