Synopsis: The theme of trust, betrayed or fulfilled, runs through this collection of short stories: Parents lead children into peril, husbands abandon wives, wives manipulate husbands, and time undermines all. Love pangs, a favorite subject of the author, take on a new urgency as earthquakes, illnesses, lost wallets, and deaths of distant friends besiege his aging heroes and heroines. One man loves his wife’s twin, and several men love the imagined bliss of their pasts; one woman takes an impotent lover, and another must administer her father’s death. Bourgeois comforts and youthful convictions are tenderly seen as certain to erode: “Man,” as one of these stories concludes, “was not meant to abide in paradise.”

From the Back Cover: "Dazzling...We certainly can trust him -- we are in very good hands."

-- The New York Times

"It is in his short stories that we find Updike's most assured work...and almost without fail they give pleasure, a quality not to be taken lightly."

-- The Washington Post Book World

"For thirty years, John Updike has been among our most clearsighted, hard-working, emotionally courageous, technically adept, playful, serious, and productive artists....Read him."

-- USA Today
