Sad news

John Updike, 1932 - 2009

In a 2005 "This I Believe" essay, he wrote:

"I seem most instinctively to believe in the human value of creative writing, whether in the form of verse or fiction, as a mode of truth-telling, self-expression and homage to the twin miracles of creation and consciousness."

Indeedly sad. I look forward to August 2009 when I can at least carry around his last novel (Widows of Eastwick hits paperback) on the subway and crease the pages as good books should be.
