More Matter is a lively discussion of essays by Pulitzer prizewinner John Updike.
A rich collection of John Updike's best-loved essays, critical writings and reflections. Wide ranging, incisive, witty and always superbly written, More Matter has something to say about almost everyone - from Graham Greene to Bill Gates to Mickey Mouse - and everything - from sexual politics to spiritual matters to unopenable packages. It provides any number of intimate glimpses into how this remarkable mind works.
Praise for More Matter:
'Unlike most journalism, Updike's occasional writing is so exquisite as to repay multiple readings' Publishers Weekly
'More Matter attests to Mr. Updike's remarkable versatility and to his ardent drive to turn all his observations into glittering, gossamer prose. . . . In his strongest pieces, Mr. Updike's awesome pictorial powers of description combine with a rigorous, searching intelligence to produce essays of enormous tactile power and conviction' New York Times
'More Matter will leave even his closest followers amazed. . . . Updike can write about anything, in any form and at any length, and do it with intelligence and knowledge and grace and agility and wit-and oh, the prose' Pittsburgh Tribune Review
