9780394416380: Bech: A Book

In BECH: A BOOK, John Updike delineates a famous writer who, at early middle-age, has published his best work and now watches helplessly as "his reputation grows while his powers decline."

Bech's final cross, if we may, is his induction into the National Academy of Arts and Letters...a reminder that when we start collecting honors, our most productive work, whether personal or corporate, is usually wrapped in the folds of an unkind history.

From the Back Cover:


"Updike's most delightful book . . . Truly entertaining."
--Harper's

"JOHN UPDIKE HAS WRITTEN HIS MOST APPEALING NOVEL."
--The Boston Sunday Globe

"BECH SUCCEEDS MARVELOUSLY. . . . One falls into the book and through it and out the other side of it as effortlessly as one might slide through a polished aluminum tube in a funhouse. . . . A deft poke at what it means to be a writer in America."
--The New York Times

"ONE OF UPDIKE'S BEST CREATIONS."
--Life
