    From the transcript:. KURTZ: I could hardly believe it when Phillip Roth said he is giving up writing. The man has written 31 books since 1959 including such classics such as "Port Noise Complaint, Goodbye Columbus, Zuckerman On Bound, The Ghost Rider, Professor of Desire, Savage Theater and The Human Stain," and I've read most of them.

    At least three of the titles are not spelled that way. My favorite is"Port Noise Complaint." Yes, that's what it sounds like, but maybe in the hours after the transcript is first posted, someone could go through it and correct any mistakes like this one..
