One thought on “Updike quoted in Bellow tribute

  1. Wonderful tribute to a solid fiction writer. I had the pleasure of reading Bellow’s short fiction and 4 of his novels. In these works he showed an amazing facility with language, sophistication of mind, and creativity of plot and character development. I agree with Mr. Pritchett that his best work was in his (often longish) short fiction.
