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 read him for years, you'll be delightfully reminded of John Updike's rightful place in the pantheon of quintessential American writers.About the Author:
