TexMo_Updike_78879When I lived in Salem, Massachusetts, I used to see John Updike around the area sometimes. In the fall of 2007, I became very interested in meeting him. A mutual friend, a bank industry executive and horse fancier from the English countryside named Prunella, offered to facilitate an introduction. She invited me to a concert at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Beverly Farms, where Updike was a congregant. She knew he would be there. At Texas Monthly
