John Updike

January 27, 2009

Via the Associated Press:

John Updike, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist, prolific man of letters and erudite chronicler of sex, divorce and other adventures in the postwar prime of the American empire, died Tuesday at age 76.

Raise a glass, shed a tear, curl up with Rabbit, Run. A giant has, inevitably, fallen.
