Due Considerations by Professor John Updike
Book Description""A drop of truth, of lived experienced, glistens in each." "This is how John Updike modestly described his nonfiction pieces, of which "Due Considerations" is perhaps his most varied, stylish, and personal collection. Here Updike reflects on such writers as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry James, Don DeLillo, A. S. Byatt, Colson Whitehead, and""Margaret Atwood. He visits China, goes to art exhibitions, provides a whimsical and insightful list of "Ten Epochal Moments in the American Libido," and shares his thoughts on the fall of the Twin Towers, which he witnessed from a tenth-floor apartment in Brooklyn. John Updike was always more than simply one of America's most acclaimed novelists; he was also, as the" Los Angeles Times "noted in appraising this volume, """one of the best essayists and critics this country has produced."
