Praise

Assorted Prose [delivers] wonderfully funny parodies, brilliant analyses of style, passionate memories, stunning forays into love and expectation and cruelty, and a voice very much involved with the extraordinary act of living, the art of wonder, the art of art.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“John Updike has never yet parted with a word before its shape conformed to the creator’s purpose. . . . [For those] who didn’t see it in The New Yorker in 1960, his grandstand account of Ted Williams’s last trip to the plate (Williams hit a home run) is worth the full price of admission to these pages.”—Time
 
“Fascinating . . . Updike’s versatility is as apparent as his mastery of the language.”—Saturday Review
