Though primarily a writer of fiction, Updike’s poetry is also treated with respect. I suspect the interest in this volume is primarily crossover from people who are fans of his fiction. It falls on fence as far as I’m concerned. There’s no compelling reason to keep it on the shelves after ten years without interest. However, considering his popularity as a fiction writer, I could see keeping it until 20 years of patron disinterest has passed rather than a mere ten.
