Tina Brown Asks Philip Roth About the Future of the Novel

Written on March 28, 2011 by Banafsheh Farhangmehr in Arts & Cultures & Societies

Philip Roth has devoted his life to creating novels, but he’s pessimistic about their future.

“The book can’t compete with the screen,” Roth tells Tina Brown in this video, and even the Kindle won’t change that.

“It couldn’t compete beginning with the movie screen,” Roth says. “It couldn’t compete with the television screen, and it can’t compete with the computer screen.”
