  1. Interesting character, that Henry Roth. I don’t think there is much known about him. Either way, I read Call It Sleep, and it is one awesome book.

  2. Did you that there is a documentary film portrait of Henry Roth, made in the year of his death? As far as we know it is the only film with and/or about Henry Roth, his work.
