It includes comprehensive listings of Updike's short fiction, poems, articles, essays, and reviews, as well as extensive documentation of letters, speeches, dramatic works, manuscripts, interviews, and blurbs. Volume II contains entries for material about Updike and his work (reviews, commentary, and theses), several appendices (media appearances, work read by others, works in translation, exhibits and catalogs), and full-color versions of images appearing in the printed volume. Large, thick, 8.5 x 11 inches, 610 pages (plus nearly 300 pages of text on CD). This special limited issue is bound in quarter leather, includes a slipcase, and features a colophon SIGNED BY UPDIKE.
