John Updike in his Own Words: "Films for the Humanities and Sciences." 56 minutes, color. The DVD had the following summary: "This is a rare glimpse into the literary psyche of one of America's premier novelists, who has twice won the Pulitzer Prize for literature. In the only writers' workshop Updike has ever conducted, the author explores his beginnings as a writer, and offers his unique perception of the writing process-including his insistence that "most of the best fiction is written out of early impressions." Workshop sessions are blended with exclusive interviews in which Updike talks about his Pennsylvania roots, and read aloud from his own works. Printed on-screen selections from specific titles emphasize given topics."
