Among contemporaries, I hugely admire Alice Munro, our Chekhov, Saul Bellow, Philip Roth, and
It's a literary trope. Pioneered by the Saul Bellow and Philip Roth types. Sex scenes "should make the reader uncomfortable."
Ben Moser on Clarice Lispector: Philip Roth, Saul Bellow, Bernard Malamud don't "hold a candle to her":

Saul Bellow beat Philip Roth over Belgian beer this eve. Not that they aren't/weren't both arrogant punks. And I say that w/love for both.
were saddened to learn today of the passing of Louis Strick, a really wonderful multi-talented and generous man who gave us our start as an author by publishing our first collection of short stories in hardcover back in 1979. He was an intelligent, warm, funny, astute person whose wide-ranging interests and gift for friendship made him someone we will always admire greatly. (Our book Autumn in Brooklyn is dedicated to him.) We used to talk fondly about Midwood High School, which he graduated from exactly twenty-five years before us, in the first graduating class. We loved hearing his stories about Saul Bellow, Philip Roth, John Ashbery, and other writers he knew. As his colleague from Meridian Books, the legendary editor Aaron Asher, once said, "Louis Strick was a guy who loved books and publishing and fiction" (Kenneth C. Davis, Two-Bit Culture: The Paperbacking of America 296). Our mom was a calligrapher, as were some of our friends, and Louis Strick more than almost anyone was responsible for the f ...
Stern lived under the shadows of his great friends Saul Bellow & Philip Roth but his fiction had a special tact, wit & intelligence.
"Most every form of expression in America is now attuned to the second-rate, if not third-rate . . . and God knows how we will find our way out of the wilderness. Mediocrity which succeeds is the norm . . . . Let us hope that posterity, at least, will redeem us." William Styron, in a letter written to Norman Mailer on September 28, 1954; from SELECTED LETTERS OF Norman Mailer It seems that even then the sky was thought to be falling on American fiction. What followed? Virtually all the work of Richard Yates, a good bit more of John Cheever, all of Updike, most of Salter, all of Toni Morrison, most of Saul Bellow, all of Philip Roth, Thomas Pynchon, most of Flannery O'Connor, a little more Welty, a bunch of James Baldwin, Cormac Mccarthy, Edward P. Jones, Walker Percy, Richard Ford, John Barth, William T. Vollman, Marilynne Robinson, Ha Jin. And so on.

On "Fresh Air" with Terry Gross... Mr. RAKOFF: I freely admit to having had all the accoutrements that make for a lovely childhood, one replete with the perquisites of great creature comfort in a bustling and cultured metropolis, in a home decorated in typical late 20th century secular humanist Jewish psychiatrist. African masks, paintings both abstract and figurative, framed museum posters, Merrimac or bedspreads. And listen on the hi-fi - why, it's the Weavers at Carnegie Hall or "Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris," or is that Miriam Makeba clicking her way through a Kosa lullaby? And on the bookshelf, among the art monographs, the Saul Bellow and Philip Roth novels, the Gunter Grass first editions, collected New Yorkers, Time-Life Great Books, National Geographics and Horizon magazines - there, tucked in behind the Encyclopedia Judaica, you might just find that old illustrated copy of "The Joy of Oral Sex," a gag gift never thrown out. Terry Gross: Okay. So with all that great stuff on ...
Thirty years ago the American Jewish fiction of Philip Roth and Saul Bellow was all about Yiddish insults, blonde shiksas, and getting away from the past. Today’s talented crop of young Jewish writers, such as Nathan Englander, Michael Chabon, and Dara Horn, are weaving tales bound in a newfound ethnic pride that has revitalized Jewish literature in America. by David Sax Illustration by Tim Sheaffer. Until he was invited to a symposium at New York’s Yeshiva University in 1962, Philip Roth felt fairly comfortable as a Jewish writer. But that night, the celebrated young novelist was jeered and threatened, called a self-hating Jew and an anti-Semite—all by an overwhelmingly Jewish audience that Roth had expected to be welcoming. Roth’s sin was his warts-and-all portrayal of Jewish characters in his short-story collection Goodbye, Columbus—Jews who took advantage of other Jews, avoided synagogue, and sold out their communities. At a time when the scars from the Holocaust were still fresh and Jewish ...
Just had an interesting, lengthy podcast conversation at the US Embassy here in Vilnius, during the course of which I ended up talking about a whole bunch of issues I ordinarily do not get a chance to discuss in public, such as (to list but a few): the role played by the Boston Celtics in the process of my learning English; the respective merits of Philip Roth and Saul Bellow's literary style; the genius of Leo Tolstoy; the reasonable unclouded happiness of my childhood, adolescence, and youth; the habit of "slow reading" as a prerequisite to being a good teacher of writing; the blissfully and impossibly limited and monochromatic nature of life in the former Soviet Union; being Jewish without feeling Jewish (and the other way around) in the old USSR; the vicissitudes of life, death, and everything in-between; why fools fall in love; why none of us, sadly, can possibly hope to live for more than 4 billion years (that's when, as per the world-renowned astronomers' recent confirmation, the Milky Way will col ...
