Updike, Run

Maybe you’ve heard by now, but John Updike passed away today as told by his publisher, Knopf. The NYTimes obit is all encompasing of a career that spanned the rise (decent?) of the American suburban class.

Of course we’ve all read Witches of Eastwick and the first Rabbit novel, Rabbit, Run, but are there any other favorites out there? His catalogue is quite long, and we really only have his biggest and latest.  Feel free to give us suggestions on what should be carried now that his work will pass into deceased canon.
