The Plot Against America

Speaking of Pseudo-Fascism, check out Frank Rich's discussion of why Philip Roth's new novel The Plot Against America has shot up the best seller charts even though it doesn't even come out until next week. A very interesting discussion. I don't usually think of Roth as a political novelist, unless you define political as providing a manual on how to get your students in bed, but I guess in these times it doesn't take much to make a political statement.
