Updike’s Farewell

American author John Updike died Tuesday from lung cancer.  

Updike was best known for his Rabbit novels (Rabbit, Run – 1960; Rabbit Redux – 1971; Rabbit is Rich – 1981; Rabbit at Rest – 1990; and Rabbit Remembered – 2001). He won two Pulitzer Prizes for them in 1982 and 1991. His other works, ranging in topic from post-war American culture to issues of marriage and divorce, only added to his well-earned reputation. 

Updike was 76 years old. (Read the full story from NPR here).
