Cloth boards, Price clipped. Tight and clean. Inscriibed on FFEP 'For Tom Baker who bought this book on June 25, 1981. Best, John Updike'. Synopsis: A 1972 collection of 29 short stories, most of which were originally published in The New Yorker. Industry reviews: "We know by now what Updike can convey to us of familial experience in suburban America, and in many of these stories once again he does it incomparably well....What I seldom if ever feel is that these inhabitants of Tarbox or wherever have experienced the capacity to love--as distinct from the inclination to copulate and the compulsion to propagate...It is only fair to add that most of the 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." New York Times Book Review - Tony Tanner (10/22/1972) "A collection of considerable variety and consistent richness." Saturday Review - Joseph Kanon (09/30/1972) "There is not a writer around today who is better able to capture people, their marriages, children, affairs--really, their lives--and wring emotion from what others consider sterile suburbia. There are gems in this collection." Kanon . Ask for pictures if interested.
