Description

John Updike was a master storyteller, and this collection, from his final years, reveals that up to the end he remained the finest short-story writer of his generation.

‘Magnificent, exhilarating, crisply evocative, rippling with irony. Updike’s genius can be seen on peak form. With this book, a talent that burnt brightly goes out in a blaze of brilliance’ Sunday Times

‘A haunting valedictory alive with characteristic preoccupations: small-town life; “domestic duplicity”; travel; aging rituals; and the transience of existence. This is a collection filled with nuanced observations, descriptive flair and sentences that stop you in your tracks’ Metro
