Product Details


“Possesses those distinctive Updike qualities—sensuous detailing, a vocabulary one savors, diction that ranges from the laconic to the rococo, and a sure eye for the sorrows and complexities of childhood and married life.”—The Washington Post
“[These] stories are extremely readable, not one of them without some moments of dazzling minute observation, some sudden glide of psychological percipience, some abrupt accuracy about the harassments and consolations of day-to-day living.”—The New York Times Book Review
“[Updike] is a religious writer; he is a comic realist; he knows what everything feels like, how everything works. He is putting together a body of work which in substantial intelligent creation will eventually be seen as second to none in our time.”—The Hudson Review
