NEW YORK (AP) - A prize-winning biographer of John Cheever and Richard Yates is taking on a living subject: Philip Roth.
Blake Bailey is working on a biography with the cooperation of the celebrated author of "American Pastoral" and other novels.
Bailey and Roth's agent, Andrew Wylie, made the announcement Wednesday. Bailey doesn't yet have a publisher.
Bailey's Yates biography, "A Tragic Honesty," was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle prize in 2004. His "Cheever: A Life" won the book critics prize in 2010 and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.
The Roth book is not his only project. He also has a memoir scheduled for 2014.
