1. I think that’s a supernice picture! You both look so happy. You should consider putting that pic at the very top of this blog with the title.

  2. Wow. Not since Connie Chang inerviewed Marlon Brando has there been such a obvious mismatch…

  3. Roddy: Different strokes for different folks, I suppose. But I read three Updike-related books (including “Terrorist”) before talking to him, pored through numerous academic books for research and reread passages from several others and got Updike to talk about a number of things he hadn’t talked about in any ot the interviews featured in James Plath’s entertaining “Conversations with John Updike” collection. I also called him on his BEA speech. In short, eat me. The interview kicked ass. And in many ways, this is Updike as you haven’t seen him before.

  4. Whoa, whoa, whoa … does this mean Updike’s going to be hanging with Bat Segundo?

    I’m looking forward to his appearance at the NY Public Library this Thursday, but I don’t know if I’ll have the nerve to get that close. I eagerly await more details of your summit.

  5. Wow…cut-and-paste technology has come a long way.

    Seriously, Ed, I can’t wait for this one.

  6. We’ll see. Nice to know you read three “Updike-Related” books, whatever that means.

    The proof in the pudding is in the eating. I will be the first to apologize if the interview is truly kick-ass.

  7. He looks all giggly like a schoolgirl. I’m looking forward to his comments on the BEA speech, which I heard. I wish I had been able to ask him some questions.

  8. Updike that is, looks like the schoolgirl. Though I’ve seen Ed’s rendition of a schoolgirl. I went blind for a week.
