About this title

Synopsis:

"It is, quite simply, Updike's best novel yet." NEWSWEEK

A deftly satirical portrait of life and love in a suburban town as only Updike can paint it.
From the Paperback edition.

Review:

Updike's eighth novel, subtitled "A Romance" because, he says, "People don't act like that any more," centers on the love affair of a married couple in the Connecticut of 1962. Unfortunately, this is a couple whose members are married to other people. Suburban infidelity is familiar territory by now, but nobody knows it as well as Updike, and the book is written with the author's characteristic poetic sensibility and sly wit.

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
