John Updike

Below is a list of writings by the American writer John Updike. I put an X by the books I have by Updike in my library. I do not have any poetry books by Updike in my library. I do not recall ever coming across used poetry books by John Updike. I also have never read any poetry by Updike.

I was thinking this morning I can not remember ever meeting anyone in my life who has read the writings of John Updike. Yesterday when Carol and I were visiting Black River Used Bookstore I mentioned the poet Philip Larkin and a British writer named Anthony Powell. The owners of this used bookstore did not know these names.
