Updike did it all— fiction, essays, reviews, poetry—and always with wit, wisdom, learning and style.  Should you be looking for a first-rate study of his works, read W. H. Pritchard's book, Updike: America's Man of Letters (University of Massachusetts Press, 2005). No academic jargon, I promise you. I don't know if it's still in print but copies are not hard to find.
