Memories of the Ford Administration

Memories of the Ford Administration Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When junior college professor Alfred Clayton is asked to record his impressions of the Ford Administration, he recalls a turbulent piece of personal history as well. In a decade of sexual liberation, Clayton was facing a doomed marriage and the passionate beginnings of a futile affair with an unattainable Perfect Wife. But one memory begets another: Clayton's unfinished book on James Buchanan. In John Updike's fifteenth novel, he masterfully alternates between two men, two lives, two American centuries — one Victorian, the other modern — shining an irreverent, witty, and sometimes caustic light on the contrasting views of social fictions and sexual politics.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 371).
