Writer and comedian David Baddiel chooses the American novelist, John Updike. With Matthew Parris and Justin Cartwright.

His novels perfectly captured the shifting moral codes of middle America in the 1970s and 80s but do John Updike's novels still have something important to tell us today? The writer and comedian David Baddiel makes the case for Updike in conversation with Matthew Parris and the novelist and Updike expert, Justin Cartwright.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in January 2014.
