In an interview with Cynthia Haven published on The Book Haven, Roth revealed that he spends his time swimming, watching baseball and nature-spotting. Roth has written a word of fiction since 2009 and doesn’t plan to again. The Guardian has more:
“I have no desire to write fiction,” said the Pulitzer prize-winning literary giant. “I did what I did and it’s done. There’s more to life than writing and publishing fiction. There is another way entirely, amazed as I am to discover it at this late date.”
Instead: “I swim, I follow baseball, look at the scenery, watch a few movies, listen to music, eat well and see friends. In the country I am keen on nature.”
