I found this cloth edition of John Updike's Rabbit Redux on my father's shelf and thought I'd borrow it. Inside, in my father's hand, this. May 7, 1972, the day I was born. "In Awe." And yet it's a mystery. At his son? Or Updike, whom he and my mother both loved? He won't remember. Inside there's a red leaf long ago pressed dry. Did he put it there that day, or did I as a boy? He won't remember, and I don't, either. The leaf is pressed between pages 188 and 189, the top line of which reads, "'He will be as big as my father and my father was no shrimp.'" #inmyfathershouse #updike #picturesandwords #oralhistoryoftheworld
