Product Details

Praise

“A work of really awesome literary cunning . . . Problems won’t be surpassed by any collection of short fiction in the next year, and perhaps not in the next ten. [One feels] gratitude that such a splendid artistic intelligence has been brought to bear on some of the important afflictions of our times.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“Updike [is] Wordsworthian, revealing hints of the supernatural in the events of everyday material life. He has braved the great themes, and noticed the unnoticeable, treating both with equal respect, an achievement that does him much honor.”—Margaret Drabble, The Washington Post Book World
 
“There is no flaw in the way John Updike tells a story; he knows all the ways. . . . He can spin dazzle and excitement out of nothing, if need be, like the dew-glitter of a newly made spider’s web. . . . We owe him a debt of thanks and admiration for the pleasure he has given.”—George Garrett, The Sewanee Review
