Ever since then she has been trying to reform the men around her, even if that ultimately means destroying herself in the process. With his unerring portraits of Lucy and her hapless, childlike husband, Roy, Roth has created an uncompromising work of fictional realism, a vision of provincial American piety, yearning, and discontent that is at once pitiless and compassionate.Author Biography: In the 1990s Philip Roth won Americas four major literary awards in succession: the National Book Critics Circle Award for Patrimony (1991), the PEN/Faulkner Award for Operation Shylock (1993), the National Book Award for Sabbaths Theater (1995), and the Pulitzer Prize in fiction for American Pastoral (1997).

He won the Ambassador Book Award of the English-Speaking Union for I Married a Communist (1998)- in the same year he received the National Medal of Arts at the White House. Previously he won the National Book Critics Circle Award for The Counterlife (1986) and the National Book Award for his first book, Goodbye, Columbus (1959). In 2000 he published The Human Stain, concluding a trilogy that depicts the ideological ethos of postwar America. For The Human Stain Roth received his second PEN/Faulkner Award as well as Britains W. H. Smith Award for the Best Book of the Year.

In 2001 he received the highest award of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Gold Medal in fiction, given every six years for the entire work of the recipient.
