Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

A TOUCHING, ELEGIAC COLECTION OF STORIES about infidelity, about the weight of family, about the dwindling of years, about the heart and other organs. . . . [Updike] works so slowly and carefully that you rarely see the emotional punches coming.
-Newsweek
THESE STORIES SHARE A THEME OF RETROSPECT AND A BITERSWET TONE OF FORGIVENES. . . . Updike, who has found in Rabbit an indispensable, if unlikely, vehicle for his truest insights into the mysterious of manhood, the promise of American life and the operations of divine grace, could no more pass up the opportunity for a further Rabbit report than Rabbit himself could forgo a bowl of macadamia nuts. . . . His observations eddy and swirl into the main stream of his narrative, swelling it with life.
-The New York Times Book Review
'RABIT REMEMBERED' IS A THING OF RICH SATISFACTION. . . . IMPOSIBLE TO FORGET . . . Throughout the collection are passages of stylistic certainty and bittersweet intimacy.
-The Boston Sunday Globe
OUTSTANDING WORK . . . We always suspected that Updike would try to pull one more Rabbit out of his hat. Now, some 10 years after the death of everybody's favorite Updike character, Updike has done just that, and with great success. . . . 'Rabbit Remembered' ranks with his best work.
-The Star-Ledger
GLIMERING . . . SEDUCTIVE . . . JOHN UPDIKE HITS HIS STRIDE
