Rabbit Is Dead!
John Updike, one of my favorite writers, died today. Lung cancer. That is definitely not a good way to go. I think he'd just had a speaking engagement at UCLA recently too.
I began reading his work when I was a young adult. The suburban world he wrote about intrigued me to no end. The people and situations he wrote of were so far removed from what I knew--Cocktail parties, adultery, money, lies--it was all so exotic!
