Reviews

"Steamy . . . breathtaking . . . In Updike's novel, our vast South American neighbor emerges as a country both ancient and new."--The New Yorker

"There is a wonderful drive to the novel, true lyricism, real drama. . . . Updike has rare insight into the psychology of sexual behavior and the mysterious, almost otherworldly devotedness TristΓ£o and Isabel share."--Chicago Tribune

"The book [is] thrilling, not only by its own rights, as an action-driven narrative designed to thrill, but also as an instance of a contemporary master, one whom we thought we had figured out long ago, daring to reinvent himself before our jaded eyes."--The New Criterion
