It isn’t awesome enough for Blake Bailey that W.W. Norton & Company has picked up “Philip Roth: The Biography,” but they also decided to throw him some cash for the opportunity to publish his own memoir. So that means while we have to wait “8 to 10 years” for Bailey to finish up his work on Roth, we can fill the gap by reading his forthcoming biography on Charles Jackson in 2013, and in 2014 read about the life and times of a biographer. You can spend the other years revisiting Bailey’s bios on Yates and Cheever, but after that you’re on your own.
