      The article focuses on the life and works of Henry Roth, an American Jewish author known for his autobiographical works. Roth was born in Galicia 1906 and died in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1995. His book "Call It Sleep," a novel about immigrants in the U.S. published in 1934 which did not garner public acclaim until the 1960s. The author speculates why Roth experienced a writer's block for 60 years after publication of "Call It Sleep." Other subjects include Roth's move from New York to Maine and his second novel "A Star Shines Over Mt. Morris Park."
