John Updike: A Bibliography
Research for an undergraduate thesis revealed the need for a definitive bibliography of the works of John Updike. Although Mr. Updike in a relatively short career has excited considerable critical controversy, no one has yet given him the bibliographical treatment such a prolific writer deserves. Perhaps the greatest virtue of my bibliography is its listing of the first source for all published writings later collected by Mr. Updike. Standard periodical indexes overlooked many of these entries which later were revised for collection by the author, and thus are important to any study of Updike.
