Synopsis

Due Considerations by John Updike

This collection of John Updike's non-fiction writings includes a delightful preface, 'Everything Considered', in which he tells of his lifelong love affair with words; essays on travel, and on faith; introductions to some of the classics; reviews of lesser known foreign writers and new books by English and American contemporaries; as well as non-fiction topics from the sinking of the Lusitania to Coco Chanel's 'unsinkable career'; tributes to legendary New Yorker figures, and much more. A cruise through the cultural waters of the past decade with as delightful, witty, sensitive and articulate a guide as you could hope for, Due Considerations is a voyage not to be missed.

Reviews

The greatest writer of English prose alive Sunday Times Confirms his standing as an intellectual with the rigour of the late Edmund Wilson Metro His ability to generate sentences of consistently high quality remains unimpaired Tablet
