Updike on Writing

"When I write, I aim in my mind not toward New York but toward a vague spot a little east of Kansas. I think of the books on library shelves, without their jackets, years old, and a countryish teen-aged boy finding them, and having them speak to him."

John Updike, as quoted by Garrison Keillor's Writer's Almanac. It's Updike's birthday today.
