“The Human Stain” and Wikipedia

Philip Roth’s book The Human Stain (2000) and the film that it gave rise to both repay the time invested in reading or viewing. The difficulties Roth had getting Wikipedia to change an error in their entry on his book fit very nicely with some of its themes. See his:

An Open Letter to Wikipedia About Anatole Broyard and “The Human Stain” : The New Yorker.

This fits with an earlier post I made about Wikipedia’s editorial procedures, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t use Wikipedia.
