Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first and second novels in John Updike's acclaimed quartet of Rabbit books, Rabbit, Run and Rabbit Redux — now in one marvelous volume.

Review:

"Brilliant and poignant....By his compassion, clarity of insight, and crystal-bright prose, [Updike] makes Rabbit's sorrow his and our own." The Washington Post (on Rabbit, Run)

Review:

"Precise, graceful, stunning, he is an athlete of words and images. He is also an impeccable observer of thoughts and feelings." The Village Voice (on Rabbit, Run)

Review:

"'Great in love, in art, boldness, freedom, wisdom, kindness, exceedingly rich in intelligence, wit, imagination, and feeling — a great and beautiful thing...' these hyperboles (quoted from a letter written long ago by Thomas Mann) come to mind after reading John Updike's Rabbit Redux." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Updike owns a rare verbal genius, a gifted intelligence and a sense of tragedy made bearable by wit....A masterpiece." Time (on Rabbit Redux)
