"The theme of memory, touched upon in the dedicatory epigraph, runs through this collection of short stories. For many characters, the past is a miraculousland perpetually in need of rediscovery. These stories concern an America where most of us are exiles and where moving automobiles contain a good fraction of our lives. Mr. Updike moves from the comic romance to the somber monologue. The setting is generally the northeastern United States, most often Pennsylvania." (from the jacket) First and Second Printing Before Publication. Bookseller Inventory # 11010A
