Rabbit at Rest

John Updike passes away at 76.

R. I. P. John.
Only two weeks ago, he said in an interview that he’d never retire.
His essay on Ted Williams, one of the best ever on baseball.
The early short stories, supreme. Read “A and P” some time.
Of all the novels, my favorite is still Rabbit, Run.
We’ll not see his like again, ever.
