American Novelist Philip Roth, Author Of 'Portnoy's Complaint,' Dies At 85

Updated at 12:50 a.m. ET Philip Roth, whose novel American Pastoral won a Pulitzer in 1998 but who was best-known for the controversial and explicit 1969 Portnoy's Complaint , has died at age 85. Roth's biographer Blake Bailey, who confirmed his death to NPR, says the author was surrounded by friends and family. Roth was born in Newark, N.J., on March 19, 1933, and began a literary career in college. After briefly attending Rutgers University, he went to Bucknell University, where he started a magazine called Et Cetera , which featured some of his early short stories, according to Biography.com. The New Yorker , where Roth published his first stories, said "Defender of the Faith," his second piece for the magazine, "prompted condemnations from rabbis and the Anti-Defamation League. 'His sin was simple: he'd had the audacity to write about a Jewish kid as being flawed,' David Remnick wrote in a Profile of Roth, in 2000. 'He had violated the tribal code on Jewish self-exposure.'

With Word And Deed, Trump Rallies Abortion Rights Opponents In Midterms

In need of strong turnout from the GOP base in the midterm elections, President Trump rallied anti-abortion activists at a fundraiser in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday night, telling voters that failing to turn out for the November midterms would risk undoing the victories they've won during the Trump administration. The speech came just as his administration unveiled a new rule to restrict federal funding to groups that provide or refer patients for abortions. Speaking to donors and other guests at the annual Susan B. Anthony List gala, Trump warned anti-abortion activists against complacency. "What if Democrats gained power? They will try to reverse these incredible gains, these historic gains," Trump said. From the front of a packed ballroom, Trump called out several vulnerable Democrats who've supported abortion rights and face tough Senate races this fall. He told the audience their votes this year are "every bit as important as your vote in 2016," before quickly adding, "Although I

Live Updates: May 22 Primary Election

11:20 p.m.: Casey Cagle and Brian Kemp will face each other in a July runoff for the Republican spot for governor following tonight’s primary election. The winner takes on Democrat Stacey Abrams, who could become the first woman, and the first African American, to ever hold the top political seat in Georgia. Cagle led the pack of GOP candidates from start to finish as results came in, while Kemp easily held off Hunter Hill for second place. Abrams, meanwhile, stormed out to a huge lead over her opponent, Stacey Evans, and never looked back. The results in the governors races weren’t much of a surprise, but there were several unexpected finishes. In the Republican race for Secretary of State, Josh McKoon faltered. Meanwhile, other candidates for office secured enough votes to avoid a runoff. We’ll analyze the numbers up and down the ballot and look ahead to the next election on Political Rewind with Bill Nigut at 2 p.m. on GPB Radio and on the GPB News Facebook Page . 11:13 p.m.: In his

House Passes 'Right-To-Try' Bill For Experimental Drugs

Legislation that would allow terminally ill patients to get access to experimental drugs is headed to the president's desk. The House on Tuesday passed a "right-to-try" bill that was approved by the Senate in 2017. "People who are terminally ill should not have to go from country to country to find a cure," said Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, on the House floor Tuesday. The bill, which President Trump is expected to sign, has patient advocates divided. Patient groups including the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network and the American Lung Association opposed the bill. They say it could do more harm than good by giving patients access to drugs that may, in the end, shorten their lives. Advocates say the bill would make it easier for patients to get access to experimental drugs that have completed the first phase of clinical trials and are in the midst of additional testing. It eliminates the role of the Food and Drug Administration in the approval process and reduces the

'Get Something That No One Else Has Gotten', Says Photographer Mark Seliger

For decades, Americans have seen celebrities through photographer Mark Seliger's lens. His work has appeared in magazines such as Vanity Fair, GQ and Rolling Stone. "Having a sense of humor" is important to the work, he says. "Whether it's a big concept or whether it's a wink." Seliger has dressed up Jerry Seinfeld as the Tin Man and photographed the back of Barack Obama's head. But he's prepared if celebrities aren't game for his portrait ideas. "I always have a backup plan ... " Seliger says. "At times, the simplest portrait is the hero — it's the one that works the best." Now, a new coffee table book called Mark Seliger Photographs collects some of the best images from his last 30 years, including presidents, actors and rock stars. Interview Highlights On how his humorous ideas don't always work out We wanted to paint the Red Hot Chili Peppers red and have smoke coming out of their mouths. And I was told by the band that that was not going to happen. But Flea [who's] one of the band
