RIP John Updike.
I don't have much time to blog about this right now, but I'm kinda shocked. Updike was one of those literary lions who seemed kind of eternal, who seemed vital and vigorous even into old age. People like that, well, it kind of shocks you when they die. Love him or hate him, he left an impression on literature.
I'll take Philip Roth in the Author Dead Pool for next up to bat, sadly.
