He ain't dead yet

I have a bet going with a friend that Roth will be the next big-name writer to kick the bucket. Of course, I would love to be proven wrong about this.
Publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt announced Wednesday that the Pulitzer Prize-winning author will have a novel out this fall, titled "The Humbling," about an aging stage performer. Next year, he'll have another book, "Nemesis," set during a polio epidemic in 1944.

Roth, who turns 76 next month, has been averaging a book a year for the past few years.
