Philip Roth is dead at the age of 85. If memory serves I read only three of his books, "Portnoy's Complaint," "The Professor of Desire," and, my personal favorite, his Kafkaesque novella "The Breast" which concludes with one of the most meaningful lines, at least for me, that I've ever read in a...
