Product Details


“If you never met Philip Roth, you can now, for Ben Taylor’s new hook enacts a kind of resurrection. In addition to bringing a mastery of the writer’s work, Taylor has somehow managed to conjure the living man—someone I found wholly at odds with his public persona. Here is the Roth I knew rendered at his most antic, hilarious, rancorous, tender.  Forget the work of Boswell’s Johnson, I have never read a more touching portrait of literary friendship. Smart, moving, wise—Taylor’s page-turning book sets a new standard for both memoir and literary biography.” —Mary Karr

“Benjamin Taylor and Philip Roth lived for a time in friendship — that rare, true element.  Like that friendship, this account is unsparing, yet loyal and kind.  It is also funny.  Here We Are made me laugh until its last pages.  I was in tears when I closed the book.  I had to read it over again, immediately.  I’m grateful to have it.” —Louise Erdrich
