Philip Roth was being interviewed on All Things Considered last night, and then I came across this list, by Robert Christgau, of 40 "essential" albums from 1967. (The Consumer Guide didn't get under way until 1969, so the list is revisionist history.) Listening to Roth, it occured to me that he is to Saul Bellow as the Kinks are to the Beatles. (This makes Norman Mailer the Stones, I think, and Thomas Pynchon is either Hendrix or Cream.)
