Re: Sinclair By Updike
For those of you interested in the novelist John Updike's observations of
the Sinclair ancestral grounds in Scotland, at least as seen through his
fictional character, Henry Bech, see Updike's novel, Bech Is Back, the
chapter entitled "Macbech", pp. 90-103. A sample: "Burdened by baggage as
he was, Bech felt lifted up, into the airy and the epic. Scotland seemed at
a glance ancient, raw, grimy, lush, mysterious, and mannerly. Like Bech it
was built solid of disappointments. Lost causes abounded."
