No More Fiction for You!

I only wish award-winning novelist Philip Roth had offered a more thoughtful answer, when he was asked why he’s given up on a whole category of books. From an interview with The Financial Times:
“I’ve stopped reading fiction,” he said. “I don’t read it at all. I read other things: history, biography. I don’t have the same interest in fiction that I once did.” Asked why he came to this position, Mr. Roth said: “I don’t know. I wised up.”
