Penguin Books, Limited, 2. 10. 2014. - 928 страница
First published in 1999, More Matter is a rich collection of essays, criticism, addresses, introductions and humorous asides from an incomparable master of prose. With a fiction writer's affectionate, shaping hand, John Updike explores everything from the nature of evil and the philosophical content of literature to the wreck of the Titanic and the phenomenon of infuriating unopenable parcels. Exploring the work of both his peers and his predecessors, there are numerous fascinating reflections on literature and the arts as well as astute insights into the overlooked details that constitute so much of our lives.
