Reviews

"A small masterpiece . . . With Of the Farm, John Updike has achieved a sureness of touch, a suppleness of style, and a subtlety of vision that is gained by few writers of fiction."--The New York Times

"An excellent book . . . [Updike] has the painter's eye for form, line, and color; the poet's ear for metaphor; and the storyteller's knack for 'and then what happened?' "--Harper's

"Updike is a master of sheer elegance of form that shows itself time and again."--Los Angeles Times
