A nod to Updyke?

    I just started reading this. Actually, I'm only on page 10. Is anyone else seeing a nod to Updyke and the Rabbit series with the references to the Runner series mentioned in this book? Or is it just me?

    Now I feel stupid for asking the question. Ugh. It has to be. The more I read, it's obvious it has to be. Feeling silly for posting this question too soon. Whomp Whomp.

    Yeah...I thought Updike when I read the titles. I also wondered if there is any real writer like what's his name. Epstein? Hockstein? See...this is why I am a carpenter. I have to take notes, believe me you. But too, in another King story, a character thinks about or otherwise mentions a writer...that I think was that Soviet writer...Solzitkneedskin? Solzitnikiskiv? Something like that. A real forlorn name. No wonder he wound up in the gulag. Maybe he hung out in New Hampshire or Vermont. I wonder if he passed? Well I think he did. Haven't heard...or wait now. I read something from him, Soltzeenixon, April Something. Stories. Not bad actually, wasn't blown away...but as I recall the stories were all linked together...so say we all.

    This Buds for you, drinkslinger!

    This has been the Oobleck, over and out. :)

    Nope, I thought so, too.
    I'm listening to it. So, apparently this becomes clear, lol.
