Who am I to "review" John Updike's work? What I can say is, these are the viewpoints of a very sensitive man. Like his other works, these are a definite observation that is worth reading. These writings come as his body, but not his mind, is slowing down. Yet they are lively & not morbid or gloomy. I can recognize my Grandfather's habits, or my Dad's way of looking at ordinary things, like his broken computer. I could identify with his remarks about the life that is passing him by - just a little. There was some looking back & some looking ahead, but mostly he's looking around & showing that he's still alive. Maybe that makes it easier to read.

This last book of John Updike lets the reader go back to Updike's early beginnings. We see a great novelist asa brilliant poet. Writer of archetypes, American protestant questions of life, sex, and death. Most of all the Updike of Pennsylvania and a tribute to his own childhood, his early fiction and to friendship.
