In “A Month of Sundays,” John Updike wrote, “Suspect each moment, for it is a thief, tiptoeing away with more than it brings.”  Today, a moment stole from us one of our most prolific, poetic and versatile writers and, for that, I mourn.  John Updike was controversial and, love him or hate him, he was important.  Our libraries are the richer because of him.  Rest well, sir.  You’ve earned a break.
