RIP John Updike

John Updike, author of A&P, died of lung cancer on Thursday.

Born in Pennsylvania, John Updike graduated from Harvard summa cum laude (that's really good) with a degree in English.

His stories have inspired since the 60's and they continue to do so today. |

He is a staple in American fiction.

His last name is slightly hilarious, too.
