NEW BOOK COLLECTION OF ESSAYS - PHILIP ROTH'S AMERICA

Recently I guest edited the 2004 annual volume of _Studies in American
Jewish Literature_, Vol. 23, one devoted exclusively to Philip Roth's most
recent fiction. I'm now wanting to develop this special issue into a book
collection of essays, and I'd like to include several brand new critical
works on this later phase of Roth's career. I'm particularly interested in
essays devoted to _Sabbath's Theater_, _The Dying Animal_ and (ESPECIALLY)
the brand new novel, _The Plot Against America_. Thematic/theoretical focus
on these novels is open.
