Results tagged “Mad Men; John Updike” from ARTicles

At our house (thanks to Netflix), we have just bid a wistful farewell to the latest season of "Mad Men." Reluctant to exit its high-gloss world, I recently scrolled through the online summaries of past episodes. Turns out I had forgotten a lot, especially the many affairs Don Draper indulged in before winding up Season 4 with a proposal. (Remember Sally's teacher? I didn't.)

Alas, however enjoyable they may be, synopses are about as satisfying as a box of Dots. I would direct anyone suffering from "Mad Men" withdrawal to the Maple stories of John Updike.
