Updike at Rest

Updike with Family

John Updike was the best American writer of the second half of the 20th century. I mean, I’ve read all of his books.” —My dad, Mike McGettigan, who is generally a nonfiction, presidential biography sort of guy.


Rabbit at Rest is one of the funniest books I’ve ever read. I mean you read it and you just, you laugh out loud.” —My dad, Mike McGettigan, who generally does not laugh out loud whilst reading. Personally, I really appreciate it when a book lives up to its incredible rainbow/stripey cover. These all do.

Updike hands

I also admire an author whose face and hand gesture and costume satisfies the reader’s high esteem for his work. His certainly did.
