About this title

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.?

Product Description:

Here is trust betrayed -- and fulfilled. Here are husbands and wives as only Updike knows them, leaving each other, loving each other, often at the same time. Here is passion ignited and quenched, absurd hope, ineffectual regret. Here is life as we live it, in twenty-two stories of uncommon beauty and pathos from a master storyteller at the peak of his brilliant career . . .
