Literary Death Match: The Fight Over Henry Roth's Legacy

Henry Roth's posthumous novel, "An American Type," has just been published and, in its wake, a fiesty literary debate has started to brew. The reviews are trickling in (stay tuned for my own, appearing in the upcoming June 18 issue), and perhaps the most devastating comes from Joshua Cohen in Harper's.  Sadly, his essay is not available online, but I got my subscription copy late last week and was riveted by the piece.
