John Updike

John Updike received warm praise from New Yorker editor William Shawn for “Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu,” but “the compliment that meant most to me,” Updike wrote, “came from [Ted] Williams himself, who through an agent invited me to write his biography. I declined the honor. I had said all I had to say.” (COURTESY OF MARTHA UPDIKE)
