THE ROAD TO HELL IS PAVED WITH WORKS-IN-PROGRESS: In an interview with a French magazine, Philip Roth has announced his retirement from literature: "I decided that I was done with fiction. I do not want to read, to write more. I have dedicated my life to the novel: I studied, I taught, I wrote and I read. With the exclusion of almost everything else. Enough is enough! I no longer feel this fanaticism to write that I have experienced in my life."
