Product Details


“One of Updike’s lightest, funniest, and slyest fictions—a comedy about the sneaky economies of the spirit.”—The New Yorker
“This comedy of Brahmin manners is . . . a mercilessly funny account of life in a religious commune. Some would say that Sarah’s flight to self-discovery is strictly in the best Puritan tradition.”—The Washington Post Book World
“A spiritual adventure story . . . Updike fully inhabits his imperfect matron. Her voice, which can sweep from the heights of religious fluff to the swamps of bathos in astonishing feats of non sequitur, is a wonderful comic invention.”—Newsweek
