March 18th. Today we celebrate the birthdate of author John Updike (1932-2009).
"What art offers is space - a certain breathing room for the spirit." John Updike from Brainyquote.com
Best known for his Rabbit, Run series, Updike published more than twenty novels and a dozen short story collections. He is one of only three people to have won the Pulitzer Price twice. His short story "A & P" has been anthologized in many collections and is one of the standards taught in writing courses in many colleges and universities.
