John Updike 1932 – 2009

Updike

I’m truly bummed out that John Updike passed away today. I’ve always enjoyed his writing and he seemed like such a genial fellow; always smiling through interviews like he knew some amusing secret. As a novelist and poet, he was quite prolific winning the PEN award and two Pulitzers; which is, well impressive. It’s very sad and difficult to believe that both Updike and Plimpton are gone.
