Endpoint and Other Poems, Paperback


John Updike was always as much a poet as a storyteller and the poems in this, his final collection, celebrate the everyday, even as they address his own imminent mortality.

It is in the connected series of poems, "Endpoint", written on his last few birthdays and culminating with the illness that killed him, that Updike's work is at its most touching and poignant.
