Synopsis: Faith ultimately bursts into flame as Updike's major new novel, charting the lives of one family through four generations, shows readers an America whose dream of perfection is translated into an obsession with God and the Moving Picture. Paterson, New Jersey, 1910: When a Presbyterian minister suddenly loses his faith and leaves the pulpit to become a salesman, he becomes a movie addict as well.

Review: When Clarence Wilmot, a Presbyterian clergyman, loses his faith and becomes an encyclopedia salesman, he opens the saga of one American family's twentieth-century relationship with God and all things religious.

Store Description: For years my parents have been avid collectors of signed, first edition books. My dad, a Princeton graduate and WWII veteran, considers these books his friends and could not bear to part with them, even though they could have paid for some awesome trips abroad. My parents are now in assisted living, without the room necessary to keep the books. My brother and I are looking for new families for our parent's treasures. Our hope is you enjoy reading and collecting dad's "friends" as much as he did over the years!
