Local writer, John Updike died today of lung cancer. Here’s an excerpt from the Boston Globe:
A master of many authorial trades, Mr. Updike was novelist, short story writer, critic, poet — and in each role as prolific as he was gifted. He aimed to produce a book a year. Easily meeting that goal, Mr. Updike published some 60 volumes. The first was a collection of poems, “The Carpentered Hen” (1958). “My Father’s Tears and Other Stories” is scheduled to be published in June.
