Item Details

The Library of America presents the second of two volumes in its definitive Updike collection. Here are 84 classic stories that display the virtuosic command of character, dialogue, and sensual description that was Updike's signature. Based on new archival research, each story is presented in its final definitive form and in order of composition, established here for the first time.Of the eighty-four stories gathered here, fifty-three first appeared in The New Yorker. Most were revised by the author for his collections Problems (1979), Trust Me (1987), The Afterlife (1994), Licks of Love (2000), and My Father's Tears (2009). All were written from 1976 to 2008, when Updike was in his mid-forties to mid-seventies, and are arranged here, for the first time, in order in which they were completed. Each is offered in its latest, definitive text, and some incorporate posthumous corrections found in Updike's personal copies of his books. A companion Library of America volume, Collected Early Stories, gathers stories written from 1953 to 1975.Christopher Carduff, editor, has been a consulting editor at The Library of America since 2006. He is the editor of John Updike's posthumous collections Higher Gossip: Essays and Criticism and Always Looking: Essays on Art.The Library of America helps to preserve our nation's literary heritage by publishing, and keeping in print, authoritative editions of America's best and most significant writing. An independent nonprofit organization, it was founded in 1979 with seed funding from the National Endownment for the Humanities and the Ford Foundation.Library of America editions will last for generations and withstand the wear of frequent use. They are printed on lightweight, acid-free paper that will not turn yellow or brittle with age. Sewn bindings allow the books to open easily and lie flat.
