Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to Publish Two More Philip Roth Novels

Philip_Roth.jpgFollowing recent shake-ups at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, a celebrated author brought some good news for the publisher today. Philip Roth will publish his next two titles with the company.

The 75-year-old novelist will release “The Humbling” in the fall, his 30th book. According to the NY Times, the novel is about an elderly actor with “a counterplot of unusual erotic desire.” Over his 50-year career, Roth has won the Pulitzer Prize for “American Pastoral,” and two National Book Awards.

Here’s more from the Times: “[HMH] will also release ‘Nemesis,’ a work of fiction set in the summer of 1944 that tells of a polio epidemic and its effects on a closely knit Newark community and its children. That book is scheduled for publication in 2010.” (Photo via Wikipedia)
