Read in February, 2009

In everything I've read by John Updike, I've admired the poetic phrasing of his prose. Of the Farm is no exception, although in this case it took a little longer for me to be drawn into the story. With a book so short, that's a little dangerous.

Lindsey I just saw this interview with him:


Steve Love Thanks for sharing that! In Houston four or five years ago I saw him read from his works and talk about his writing. Such a great experience.

Nate Dickerson Fortunately, I had the chance to see him in Houston as well. Sad to see him go. A very excellent writer. Look forward to chatting about more books with you soon.
