This Week in Literature

In an unusually wonderful week for new publications, 2 of our greatest living novelists published new works. Jose Saramago, winner of the 1998 Nobel Prize for literature, published his new work, The Double. In addition, my favorite American writer, Philip Roth, published his fascinating new book entitled The Plot Against America, which is a fictional account of what might have happened had Charles Lindbergh became president in 1940 and America becomes an ally of the Nazis.

Read these new books by some of the world's greatest treasures. I have spent many great hours with the thoughts of these 2 men and I hope the rest of the world does too.
