Philip Roth is the Pulitzer-winning author of such acclaimed novels as ''Portnoy's Complaint'', ''The Human Stain'', ''Literature/AmericanPastoral'', ''ThePlotAgainstAmerica'' and the novella ''GoodbyeColumbus''.

His works largely revolve around several recurring themes - family, sex, America, the Jewish experience, and above all Philip Roth. Everything he writes invariably features some kind of AuthorAvatar, be it a standalone character (most famously Alexander Portnoy), his recurring character Nathan Zuckerman, or even Roth himself (in which case the degree of autobiographical honesty ranges from "lots" to "almost none" to "not telling"). He always portrays "himself" as a cynical, neurotic intellectual, tinged with misogyny and self-loathing; generally the older the character is, the more pronounced his flaws.

Roth is known for his distinctive writing style, which is at once analytical, empassioned, confessional, foul-mouthed and extremely verbose.
