CFP: Philip Roth's America (no deadline; collection)

full name / name of organization: 
Derek Royal


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.

Completed essays would be preferred, but detailed abstracts on a
project-in-progress are also welcome. Final essays should be approximately
5000-6000 words in length. Deadline for submission is open. Submissions can
be emailed (as an attached MS Word file) or sent via the USPS. For
submissions, queries, or questions, please contact:
