Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

John Updike's first collection of new short fiction since the year 2000, My Father's Tears finds the author in a valedictory mood as he mingles narratives of his native Pennsylvania with stories of New England suburbia and of foreign travel.

Personal Archaeology considers life as a sequence of half-buried layers, and The Full Glass distills a lifetime's happiness into one brimming moment of an old man's bedtime routine. High-school class reunions, in The Walk with Elizanne and The Road Home, restore their hero to youth's commonwealth where, as the narrator of the title story confides, the self I value is stored, however infrequently I check on its condition. Exotic locales encountered in the journeys of adulthood include Morocco, Florida, Spain, Italy, and India. The territory of childhood, with its fundamental, formative mysteries, is explored in The Guardians, The Laughter of the Gods, and Kinderszenen. Love's fumblings among the bourgeoisie yield the tart comedy of Free, Delicate Wives, The Apparition, and Outage.

In sum, American experience from the Depression to the aftermath of 9/11 finds reflection in these glittering pieces of observation, remembrance, and imagination.
