The death of John Updike

February 23, 2009

I found out recently that John Updike has passed away. To that end, it seemed worthwhile to point you to a couple of sites, the first an obituary, the second an interview. And then of course, there is an older interview above, about ten years old, with Charlie Rose.

I’ll be interested to see how his books fair in the coming years. Something strange and fascinating seems to happen when a creator, whether of books, a company, a family or even a life leaves us.
