Significant primates (not celebrities) deaths


#1324

You’re having enough difficulty with picking out living celebs. Keep your beadies off the dead ones you greedy git.


#1325

Philip Roth. Writer.


#1326

RIP


#1327

RIP whoever you are


#1328

Can’t say fairer than that.


#1329

Never heard of him


#1330

You’re usually the go to man for writers no one’s ever heard about.


#1331

He was probably too commercial for.my tastes. RIP whoever he was.


#1332

If it’s not got Koala Lou in it, Or something about dingos robbing incest babies, @Fitzy’s bet.


#1333

He was ahead of his time and slated for the sexual nature of his writings back in post war America. I’m surprised anyone hasn’t heard of American Pastoral or Portnoy’s Complaint.


#1334

Portnoy was a pure solid legend, a level of depravity that would put @Sidney’s tampon sucking in the shade

How the absolute fuck could you never have heard of him


#1335

Never heard of this guy. Think it’s a stretch to even include him here, never mind the Celebrity Deaths thread.


#1336

Is the ‘I never heard of him “ thing now another pretend ??

I am a philistine roaster from west limerick and I have heard of and read Philip Roth .


#1337

You get a better class of roaster in West Limerick


#1338

Whatever about a better class there is certainly a proliferation of them at least.
I’m getting my coat…


#1339

I’d read The Human Stain before. I’d give it a:
Meandering, But Daycent Overall/10

I may give Portnoy an auld lash in his honour.


#1340

Portnoy’s complaint is an outstanding book, a deviant of epic proportions. I still refuse to believe that educated people have never heard Philip Roth’s name, lads who failed the leaving cert needn’t worry about it.


#1341

You hardly think the muldoons on here have read anything apart from the Sunday Indo since they left school?


#1342

Too busy pretend-reading Jordan Peterson’s Lobster Theory and PremierView.


#1343

Cornelia Frances, who played Morag in Home and Away.

RIP.
