"Rabbit" Angstrom, failed hero of "Rabbit Run", is back. He has changed, somewhat for the worse. His marriage is collapsing, his job is becoming redundant and outside pressures disturb his peace of mind; but in the end, he achieves a kind of peace, the peace of exhaustion, perhaps.

"A superb performance, all grace and dazzle...a brilliant portrait of middle America." -- Life
The assumptions and obsessions that control our daily lives are explored in tantalizing detail by master novelist John Updike in this wise, witty, sexy story. Harry Angstrom -- known to all as Rabbit, one of America's most famous literary characters -- finds his dreary life shattered by the infidelity of his wife, Janice. How he resolves -- or further complicates -- his problems, makes for a novel of the first order.
"Updike owns a rare verbal genius, a gifted intelligence and a sense of tragedy made bearable by wit....A masterpiece." -- Time
"An awesomely accomplished writer...For God's sake, read the book. It may even -- will probably change your life." -- Anatole Broyard
"Dazzling." -- The Washington Post
"A triumph." -- Newsday
