Another Author

Was the gift to Philip Roth by PEN American center an isolated incident?

Also in 2007 PEN gave the $35,000 Bingham award to Janna Levin, graduate of MIT, who's published by major house Knopf, and is a professor at Columbia University. Hardly an outsider!
I have yet to hear one coherent reason for NOT signing the petition to PEN at
Since the petition is designed to open up the closed shop of the literary scene-- for funding and reviews both-- or at least call attention to the Insider way things are run, every underground writer should be joining the protest. Every writer period who believes in democracy should be on the list. "We are the change we've asked for."
