Lung Cancer takes famous novelist, poet, writer John Updike

Young John Updike

Young John Updike

I’ve heard his name a bunch of times, but actually had no idea he was still alive.  To be frank, I thought he was as long gone as Hemingway or one of his contemporaries.  However, I just noticed he passed away a couple days ago on the 27th of January.  His most famous work was his Rabbit series (Rabbit, Run; Rabbit Redux; Rabbit Is Rich; Rabbit At Rest; and Rabbit Remembered).

Rest in peace Mr. Updike.

  1. the loss of John Updike makes me wonder if the literary world is being replenished at the same rate that it’s losing such great writers
