The moral of these stories is that all blessings are mixed.

Along with his finely tuned regard for painting, which has often provided the visual element for his fiction, there has been a deep and abiding appreciation of the reading life in general and a love of the book in particular. Surely some touch of his original ambition to be a cartoonist or illustrator lingers still for him in at least the act of writing.

    The two sides of American fiction—the precise, realist, encyclopedic appetite to get it all in, and the exquisite urge to make writing John Updike. book of sensation rendered exactly—were both alive in him.

His poetry—intellectual, witty pieces on the absurdities of modern life—was gathered in his first book, The Carpentered Hen and Other Tame Creatureswhich was followed by his first novelThe Poorhouse Fair
