Philip Roth Quotes: I Never Wanted To Be Protestant Jews Do

I Never Wanted To Be Protestant. Jews Do, Plenty Of Them. Not Me. To Be Assimilated, To Be Respectable, To Be Detached Like The Wasps, I Understand The Desire, But I Knew Never To Try. I See All Those Distinguished Wasps With The Beautiful Gray Hair And The Pinstripe Suits Who Don't Have Pimples On Their Ass. They're My Lawyers ... These Guys Are Quiet. I Don't Want To Be That Way. I Couldn't Begin To Be That Way. I'm The Wild Jew Of The Pampas. I Am The Golem Of The U.S.A.
