  "Blunt Talk" Creator Jonathan Ames
Begin deeper into the scene, so we’re not wasting time with what people in the film business call 'shoe leather.’ Also, Philip Roth has a quote that every story is about a character in a predicament. So right away, I put Walter Blunt in a predicament ...

  Resolved Question: Need help with topic
Need help with topic questions about Philip Roth? So far my teacher has disapproved of two of my topic questions, they are 1. (How has Roth's experience with political satire affected his writing.)

  Resolved Question: For those who have read
I have been reluctant to read Roth because of an initial distaste for "Portnoy's Complaint". I've read "The Plot Against America" and am moving through "Everyman", and am now rethinking my prejudice. Please indulge me with some quick and dirty reviews?
