"Limber and sprightly, unique, alive . . . Updike understands golf, keenly, and expresses his understanding with charm and beauty, in words as sturdy as Lee Trevino's stance."--Sports Illustrated
"A book written under a clear blue sky with an utterly pure swing . . . Here, Updike waltzes about the heavens of Nabokov, in pure esthetic bliss. And here his transcendental agonies and anxieties fuse into split-second moments of impact that lift us from sand pit to rhapsody."--The Philadelphia Inquirer
John Updike was born in 1932, in Shillington, Pennsylvania. His novels have won the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, the American Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Howell's Medal.
