The world lost one of its greatest literary minds in January with the death of John Updike. But as fate would have it, Updike left a collection of short fiction unpublished at the time of his death. My Father’s Tears and Other Stories will be Updike’s last contribution to a remarkable body of work. In this collection of 18 stories, to be published June 2, Updike takes us from his native Pennsylvania to Spain to India and back again, offering a multi-faceted portrait of the American experience. The stories and their subjects may vary, but the constant is Updike’s graceful, poignant, keenly observed prose.
