About This Item

New York: Alfred A Knopf, 1989. John Updike's memoirs consist of six chapters in which he write of his home town, his psoriasis, his stuttering, his discomfort during the Vietnam War, his Updike ancestors, and his religion and sense of self. He has been hair-raisingly honest and beautifully eloquent. The reader is taken beyond self-consciousness and into sheer wonder at the world and its fabric. These essays together give the inner shape of life, up to the age of fifty-five, of a relatively fortunate American male. Attractive light lilac boards with silver title print on spine. B/w family picture spread on endpapers. Photographed portrait on front panel of dust jacket. Wonderfully clean and bright book! No detracting markings of any kind.. Second Printing. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.
