John Updike died today. I wrote about him, in a fashion, on my <a href=”http://www.lauralippman.com/oct05.html”_blank” “> website</a> back in 2005. I really don’t have much to add. I loved the Rabbit books, particularly “Rabbit is Rich,” somehow never read the Bech books, although I may still. The other novels I read — well, in Lippman vernacular, they were not for me.
