This July, I am traveling at the end of the month, but that doesn't mean that I can't read a book! I've decided to honour 2011 Man Booker International Prize winner Philip Roth by selecting 1979's The Ghost Writer. First volume of a trilogy, The Ghost Writer focuses on Nathan Zuckerman, "a budding writer infatuated with the Great Books". Roth explores "the tensions between literature and life, artistic truthfulness and conventional decency". Can't wait!
