“John Updike is a poet; his prose is lean and lapidary—in some cases almost engineered, like a fine, jeweled watch. Its unfragile delicacy is exactly what is needed to convey his insights whole, as in a picture or a poem. The abused term ‘artistry’ may be here correctly applied.”—Saturday Review
“Striking . . . brilliant . . . They somehow reminded me of those unforgettable stories in James Joyce’s Dubliners.”—New York Post
“Few recent young authors have written more perceptively about . . . the conflicts of the human heart. . . . The Same Door is a significant book . . . as solid as it is refreshing.”—The New York Times Book Review
