Overview

Nacidos con apenas tres años de diferencia, Philip Roth (1933) y Don DeLillo (1936) son dos glorias vivas de las letras americanas que han sido retratados por la ágil pluma de David Remnick. Pocos escritores concitan tanta unanimidad como el estadounidense Philip Roth. Uno de los novelistas fundamentales de los últimos cincuenta años, fue el primer escritor vivo publicado en la Library of America. En este extraordinario perfil, Remnick repasa las obras maestras de Roth, la polémica que acompañó sus inicios tras la publicación de El lamento de Portnoy, la depresión que a mediados de los '90 le llevó a refugiarse en la literatura y las opiniones de Roth sobre el futuro de la literatura y las raíces de su arte.

Si Roth es el escritor público, que se crece ante la hostilidad, Don DeLillo es el autor huidizo, que intenta evitar la exposición pública. Sin embargo, su obra, con cumbres como Submundo, o Libra le ha convertido en uno de los novelistas más prestigiosos de la actualidad. Remnick va en su busca a un pueblecito cercano a Nueva York y le acompaña en un paseo por su barrio natal para buscar los temas y las preocupaciones que marcan sus novelas.
