Philip Roth has retired  NOV 09 2012

Last month, celebrated author Philip Roth quietly announced his retirement to a French magazine and no one in the US noticed until Salon picked up on it today.

In an interview with a French publication called Les Inrocks last month -- which does not appear to have been reported in the United States -- Roth, 78, said he has not written anything new in the last three years, and that he will not write another novel.

"To tell you the truth, I'm done," Roth told the magazine, in the most definitive statement he has ever made about his future plans. "'Nemesis' will be my last book."
