Imagine...Philip Roth Unleashed - Part 2


Venue: BBC Tent

To mark the death of one of America’s greatest writers, an opportunity to see part two of an Imagine special featuring Philip Roth’s last recorded television interview. After his scandalous debut with Portnoy's Complaint, and the intensely personal novels of his early career, Philip Roth turned this same fearless vision to some of the great themes of the American century- Civil Rights, McCarthyism, the Vietnam War - as his characters become impaled on history. In a career spanning six decades Roth became one of the most controversial and influential writers of the modern age, and only now, with the advent of his 80th birthday, is he ready to reveal all. Part 2 of imagine... Philip Roth Unleashed in conversation with Alan Yentob first shown in 2014.

Not suitable for children as this film contains very strong language and sexual references.
