of mine handed me a small hardcover edition of
the John Updike book "The Music School". I knew
nothing about Updike or his style but proceeded
to open the book on the long flight. As I read
I became more and more engrossed in the simple
short stories that often brought a smile to my
face. There were a few that I didn't particularly
enjoy, but others such as the "Bulgarian Poetess", which I believe won the O. Henry Short Story award, was fabulous. Another that I enjoyed was
the story "Twin Beds In Rome", a story about a
failing marriage, which also has somewhat of a sequel in the book called "Giving Blood".
After reading all these stories, I began a new
love for an author that has been acclaimed for his unique style of writing. This is a must for any
person who enjoys short stories and would like to get to know John Updike a little bit better.
