RIP John Updike.

“Men are all heart and Women are all body. I don’t know who has the brains. God maybe.”

-John Updike, Rabbit Run

john-updikeJohn Updike has long been one of my favorite authors since my high school days when I first read Rabbit Run. From Rabbit to Bech, through the Witches of Eastwick and his many short stories, I have long been a fan. A great American writer has passed from this earth and may he rest in peace.

  2. the loss of John Updike makes me wonder if the literary world is being replenished at the same rate that it’s losing such great writers
