Excerpt: The Early Stories: 19531975, published in 2003 by Knopf, is a John Updike book collecting much of his short stories written from the beginning of his writing career, when he was just 21, until 1975. Only four stories published in this entire time period have been omitted from this collection by John Updike himself: Intercession (collected in The Same Door), and The Pro, One of My Generation, and God Speaks (collected in Museums and Women and Other Stories). The majority of the stories were originally published in The New Yorker magazine. In 2004, the book received the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction. The stories are not arranged chronologically but rather by theme into eight sections: Olinger Stories (from Youll Never Know, Dear, How Much I Love You to In Football Season, same as the 1964 collection Olinger Stories), Out in the World (from The Lucid Eye in Silver Town to At a Bar in Charlotte Amalie), Married Life (from Toward Evening to Nakedness), Family Life (from The Family Meadow to Daughter, Last Glimpses of), The Two Iseults (from Solitaire to I Will Not Let Thee Go, Except Thou Bless Me), Tarbox Tales (from The Indian to Eclipse), Far Out (from Archangel to The Seas Green Sameness), and The Single Life (from The Bulgarian Poetess to Love Song, for a Moog Synthesizer). 1. Stories later collected in Too Far to Go (1979), which was later reprinted in 2009 as The Maples Stories. 2. Despite being published in 1976, this story was written a year earlier. ...
