From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up-After several pages of biographical information on the distinguished author, this book focuses on five of his short stories: "A & P"; "Ace in the Hole"; "Flight"; "Pigeon Feathers"; and "Packed Dirt, Churchgoing, A Dying Cat, A Traded Car." A plot summary, a list of characters, and at least six analyses by known critics are provided for each selection. When applicable, comparisons among Updike's works are made. In addition, the writer's comments on "Pigeon Feathers" excerpted from his memoir, Self-Consciousness (Knopf, 1989), are among the critical essays for that story. This volume, while limited in focus, will be useful for students who need clarification and additional information on Updike's shorter works.-Pat Bender, The Shipley School, Bryn Mawr, PA
