Updike dies; “Rabbit Rerun” will never be finished

rabbitFamed author John Updike’s final novel in the “Rabbit” series seems unlikely to be finished, after he died today at the age of 76.  The book was to have been a searing, behind-the-scenes look at the internecine battles amongst programmers at the TV Land network.

“John was the only man who could have tackled such material and done it justice,” Said his longtime agent Murray Green. “But now, it will fall to other, lesser men to explain the bitter disappointments in Barney Fife’s life and the unresolved guilt which Gomer Pyle carried with him throughout his entire, pathetic military career.”
