John Updike’s Final Collection of Short Stories, “My Father’s Tears”, Has Just Been Published

Stefan Beck, who blogs at The New Criterion website, likes John Updike’s final collection of short stories (which just came out).

Money quote:

The posthumous collection My Father’s Tears reminds us of one wonderful thing about Updike: Practically any example illustrates the point that he rarely missed his mark. Seventeen of these 18 stories are late Updike, written during the past decade, but, with a handful of exceptions, they show no signs of a flagging talent.
