John Updike, 1932-2009.

Chronicler of the Middle America in the second half of the twentieth century. Here is an audio of Updike, expressing concerns about the transformation of the written word on paper to infinitely permutable ensembles of electrons.

Updike's contributions to The New Yorker have been assembled here.
