He was profoundly in touch with the minutest workings of the most endearing human events and with the most contemptible. What has survived in Levis writing isnt just his memory of the unbearable, but also, in The Periodic Table and The Wrench, his delight in what made the world exquisite to him. He was himself a magically endearing man, the most delicately forceful enchanter Ive ever known - Philip Roth.
