Synopsis:
More than three decades after the events of The Witches of Eastwick, Alexandra, Jane, and Sukie, all now widowed, return to the Rhode Island seaside town of Eastwick for the summer after many years away and find themselves dealing with the lingering legacy of their evil deeds, the shocks of a mysterious counterspell, and the inroads of aging. 200,000 first printing.

Review:
"[Updike's] leading ladies are more compelling not as supernatural sorceresses but as ordinary women, haunted by the sins of their youth, frightened of the looming prospect of the grave and trying their best to get by, day by day by day."

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times, 10/20/2008

Review:
"[John Updike] still wrings more from a sentence than almost anyone else. His sorcery is startlingly fresh, page upon page."

Sam Tanenhaus, New York Times Book Review, 10/26/2008

Book Description: Knopf Publishing Group, United States, 2008. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New ed. 214 x 152 mm. Brand New Book. More than three decades have passed since the events described in John Updike s The Witches of Eastwick. The three divorcees--Alexandra, Jane, and Sukie--have left town, remarried, and become widows. They cope with their grief and solitude as widows do: they travel the world, to such foreign lands as Canada, Egypt, and China, and renew old acquaintance. Why not, Sukie and Jane ask Alexandra, go back to Eastwick for the summer? The old Rhode Island seaside town, where they indulged in wicked mischief under the influence of the diabolical Darryl Van Horne, is still magical for them. Now Darryl is gone, and their lovers of the time have aged or died, but enchantment remains in the familiar streets and scenery of the village, where they enjoyed their lusty primes as free and empowered women. And, among the local citizenry, there are still those who remember them, and wish them ill. How they cope with the lingering traces of their evil deeds, the shocks of a mysterious counterspell, and the advancing inroads of old age, form the burden on Updike s delightful, ominous sequel.
