a clean copy, with no damage or annotation. This 1st book length study of John Updike makes clear why he has drawn major critical attention and an increasingly wide readership.

Why do they attempt repeatedly and in vain to give religious meaning to the sexual act? Rear panel blurb Size: 12mo (standard paperback). 149 pages. Please refer to accompanying picture (s).
