Harry Angstrom was a star basketball player in high school and that was the best time of his life. Now in his mid-20s, his work is unfulfilling, his marriage is moribund, and he tries to find happiness with another woman. But happiness is more elusive than a medal, and Harry must continue to run - from his wife, his life, and from himself, until he reaches the end of the road and has to turn back....
I love the Rabbit series from John Updike. Updike has a way of writing characters that are so real. They are flawed, but you like most of them anyway, because they are just like people you know. Updike can get into some darker subjects, which I like because, again, it's real stuff and he's so honest. Highly recommend!
perfect way to experience updike's rabbit
this book is read perfectly; the beauty of updike's language in the ear serves as a spoonful of sugar for the bitter medicine of his characters.
