John Updike Dies at 76


NY TIMES: John Updike, the kaleidoscopically gifted writer whose quartet of Rabbit Angstrom novels highlighted so vast and protean a body of fiction, verse, essays and criticism as to earn him comparisons with Henry James and Edmund Wilson among American men of letters, died today at a hospice outside Boston. He was 76 and lived in Beverly Farms, Mass.

John Updike's passing is sad, but he left a ton of awesome work. "Immortality is nontransferrable" he said appropriately.
