RIP John Updike 1932-2009

John Updike died today. His writings have dominated American fiction for so long that it was a shock to hear he passed.

Over the years he has written such an amazingly large collection of stories and novels that he is almost guaranteed his own shelf at a library. After a while you forgot that he was just a man, and therefore mortal.
