"After a week of attending closely to the news coverage of the Democratic Convention, our chief impression was of the obfuscating, eclipsing, and molesting action of the news coverage itself. We were asked to witness the apotheosis of the newsman as his own hero. Television, unlike anything that has gone before it, puts him in front of the camera. The harassment of the politicians reached an obscene pitch. Senator Kennedy, trying to hack his way through the jungle of thrusting mikes and brazen importunities that grew up in the corridors of his hotel, was physically pushed into a panicked anger that for a moment escaped even his extraordinary control!"

Updike made the following "quick thoughts" regarding this short story in his Selected Short Stories: "A & P" is my most anthologized short story, and is read by high school students who read nothing else by me. The idiomatic monologue is not my usual style. My wife at the time said that the story reminded her rather too much of J.D. Salinger. Its inspiration was simple enough: as I drove past the local A&P in our small New England town, it occurred to me that somebody should write a short story about a supermarket. I never myself clerked, as Sammy does, though I once did see some girls in bathing suits shopping for food in the aisles. They looked remarkably naked."

    ______ 1961, Aug. 19. "Pigeon Feathers" fiction by JU. Pgs. 25-34. Reprinted in Pigeon Feathers Updike made the following "quick thought" regarding this short story in his Selected-Short Stories: " Pigeon Feathers was written in pencil in a notebook on an old sofa in a house the Updikes were renting on the Caribbean island of Anguilla in early 1960. It reconstructs my adolescent trauma of religious doubt mixed with the trauma of being moved from a small town to an isolated, unimproved farm. The notion that killing other creatures relieves the fear of death owes something to Hemingway. At the age of sixty-two, I can scarcely improve on the vision and affirmation of the last paragraph."

Updike made the following "quick thought" regarding this short story in his Selected-Short Stories." Again, a story of religious belief under siege, but with an older hero, who is entering the treacherous waters of adulthood and adultery. The fugal form, combining obliquely related incidents under the aegis of a presiding meditative voice, is an invention of which I am proud. Close to the essay, yet with fiction's liberties ad amplitude, such a story might be called Emersonian."

    Updike made the following "quick thought" regarding this short story in his Selected-Short Stories : "'The Christian Roommates'" is the only story I have based on my college experience-a life-stage which was very important to F. Scott Fitzgerald and Evelyn Waugh, among others. Harvard has graduated so many writers I felt the ground was covered, so to speak. Stories of college life rarely describe the actual labor of studying, which I do here try to portray, along with the crisis of faith that new knowledge brings. For a time, Harvard College used to assign this story to its incoming freshmen-I don't know if it helped to cushion the shock or not."

But some of the themes here are close to my heart - the wonderfully long voyage (The Coup, Brazil, even Rabbit at Rest) and the story that gets more and more distorted in the telling (The Witches of Eastwick, Memories of the Ford Administration). Rereading, I am struck by the little family I give Jesus in the last section. An American Christian child grows up thinking of Jesus as the baby born at Christmas, of Joseph and Mary; something of the sweetness clings to the idea of Him as an ancient patriarch, at the other apex of the family."
