a grad school class in which we were forced to read all the rabbit books (except "rabbit at rest," which wasnt yet written, thank god) put me on the path of disliking updike forever. although i continued to love greene and baldwin, who we also had to read.
in spite of that – and his annoying statement that he identified w/his character's sense of marginalization in "terrorist," -- he did seem like a very decent man.


John Updike's passing is sad news indeed... he possessed a truly beautiful mind; he didn't just write well, he wrote wisely


The article linked was pretty tedious to read in itself actually. Which is funny. A tedious article about how he thought Updike was tedious.
