Reviews

"Brilliant and poignant . . . By his compassion, clarity of insight, and crystal-bright prose, [John Updike] makes Rabbit's sorrow his and our own."--The Washington Post

"The power of the novel comes from a sense, not absolutely unworthy of Thomas Hardy, that the universe hangs over our fates like a great sullen hopeless sky. There is real pain in the book, and a touch of awe."--Norman Mailer, Esquire

"A lacerating story of loss and of seeking, written in prose that is charged with emotion but is always held under impeccable control."--Kansas City Star
