"The great thing about the dead, they make space." RIP John Updike


Recommended Posts

John Updike, prize-winning writer, dead at age 76


He's one of a handful of writers whose style I've purposefully copied and attempted to emulate. I haven't read much of his work since college, but I signed up for any class his name appeared on the reading list.


And hey, he even appeared in an episode of The Simpsons (as the ghost writer for a 20-page book about Krusty the Clown).


The quote in the subject line is from the Rabbit series (Rabbit Is Rich, 1981)
