John Updike, RIP

Time to dust off that second-hand copy of “In the Beauty of the Lilies”.

Bought because one ought to have read an Updike. Ought to.
Bought also because the cover looked pretty.
About time.

Happy reading..:)

Amit- some day! Rather intricate text, dark and intense too. Not what one would call easy reading.

Portia:)


Abbagirl- was wondering. :)
