Elegy At Graveside: From Philip Roth to Lebanon

Good Morning. A few new items today.

  • The world goes on. The Notebooks have focused almost exclusively on the Lebanon war for the last three and a half weeks. But the Notebooks are not primarily a Lebanon or Mideastern site. So we return, slowly, to our regularly scheduled programming with a critical essay by Pierre on Philip Roth's his latest, and very good, novel: "Everyman."
  • Candide's Recommendations: Because of the variety and extent of the recommendations lately, at least two days' editions will be kept on the front page. You can access the current, latest recommendations here, and the previous day's recommendations here.
Problems with the alerts? Suggestions? Let me know at and, as always, thanks for
