Synopsis:
The air of Eastwick breeds witches - women whose powerful longings can stir up thunderstorms and fracture domestic peace. Jane, Alexandra and Sukie, divorced and dangerous, have formed a coven. And into the void of Eastwick breezes Darryl Van Horne, a charismatic magus of a man who entrances the trio, luring them into his mansion, where he becomes the focus of their sensuous celebrations, and which is purest evil...

From the Publisher

Review:
"A Great Deal Of Fun To Read...Fresh, constantly entertaining...The text also abounds with delightful aphorisms for these times...John Updike remains a wizard of language and observation."

-- The Philadelphia Inquirer

"A wicked entertainment with lots (and lots) of sex...In book after book, Updike's fine, funny impressionistic art strips the full casings of everydayness from objects we have known all our lives and makes them shine with fresh new connections."

-- The New Republic

"A dazzling book...A very funny and very unsettling story of what witchcraft might look like if it were around today...Updike is devilishly clever."

-- Los Angeles Times

Selected By Time Magazine As One Of The Five Best Works Of Fiction Of The Year
