Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Does anyone know if this is a real book? There are two editions of it, but both were added by a user who did not shelve either one and who has a private profile.

Petra-X Off having adventures (petrax) Fanon is by John Edgar Wideman. It's a novel, came out in February last year, about the life of the Caribbean philosopher Franz Fanon. As far as I'm aware its only been published as a hardback. I have it in my bookshop but haven't read it myself.

Nothing to do with Philip Roth.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments There are several books in the database titled "Fanon", but none that I could find related to Philip Roth....

Given that they haven't even bothered to rate or shelve it, I'm guessing it might have been a mistake. I'd delete it.
