About this title

Synopsis:

Seven new installments in the peripatetic life of the Jewish-American writer, Henry Bech, catch him in several aesthetic embarrassments as he travels to several third-world countries, turns fifty, marries, falls in love, and writes a best-selling book

From the Inside Flap:

Henry Bech is now fifty years old. In this wonderful classic novel, Bech reflects on his fame, travels the world, marries an Episcopalian divorcée from Westchester, and--surprise to all--writes a book that becomes a runaway bestseller. If you've never read Updike before, there's no better place to start. If you've read him for years, you'll be delightfully reminded of John Updike's rightful place in the pantheon of quintessential American writers.
