Updike won a Pulitzer Prize in 1982 for "Rabbit is Rich" and again in 1991 for "Rabbit at Rest." In 1989, he was awarded the prestigious National Medal of Arts in a White House ceremony. Updike's more recent works include "In the Beauty of the Lilies," "The Afterlife and Other Stories," "Brazil" and "Memories of the Ford Administration, A Novel."

Updike graduated from Harvard University in 1954. A year later, he attended the Ruskin School for Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford, England. He first gained notoriety in the 1950s while writing for The New Yorker. Updike is the father of four children.
