Updike Talks

John Updike talks about his upcoming novel, Terrorist, in an interview with TIME.

[I was amused by the question about whether Updike can write about an Arab American. The presumption is that you have to be a member of the group to write about a person who is a member of the group. It's nice that Tony Hillerman and a huge number of other writers never embraced that notion.]
