Hear novelist Philip Roth, film critic David Edelstein, and TV critic David Bianculli on this edition of Fresh Air.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author's 27th book, Everyman, is now out in paperback. It's a novel about a 71-year-old, divorced, successful advertising man and his response to his physical decline and approaching death. The man - who is never given a name - has no religion or philosophy to cling to. Reviewer Gail Caldwell of the Boston Globe writes that the book is a "swift, brutal novel about a heartbreakingly ordinary subject, and it is also testament to Roth that the book leaves you a little breathless and not at all bereft." (Original Airdate: 5/18/06)

Then, David Edelstein reviews Knocked Up.

Finally, David Bianculli. He is a big Beatles fan. For the 40th anniversary of the release of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Bianculli pulls out his favorite cover versions of songs from the album. [Broadcast Date: June 1, 2007]
