Roth Wins PEN/Faulkner Again

The Washington Post’s Bob Thompson reports that The PEN/Faulkner Foundation will announce today that Philip Roth has won its 2007 award for fiction for his novel EVERYMAN — making Roth the first writer to receive the award three times. He won in 1994 for OPERATION SHYLOCK and in 2001 for THE HUMAN STAIN. “I’m delighted,” he said in a telephone interview with Thompson. The PEN/Faulkner is a gratifying award, he said, because over the years “there just seems to be a consistency to the quality of the winners.” Other finalists for the award included Amy Hempel, Edward P. Jones, Charles D’Ambrosio and Deborah Eisenberg – all for short story collections.
