" A Great Deal Of Fun To Read...Fresh, constantly entertaining...The text also abounds with delightful aphorisms for these times...John Updike remains a wizard of language and observation." -- The Philadelphia Inquirer " A wicked entertainment with lots (and lots) of sex...In book after book, Updike's fine, funny impressionistic art strips the full casings of everydayness from objects we have known all our lives and makes them shine with fresh new connections." -- The New Republic " A dazzling book...A very funny and very unsettling story of what witchcraft might look like if it were around today...Updike is devilishly clever." -- Los Angeles Times Selected By Time Magazine As One Of The Five Best Works Of Fiction Of The YearAbout the Author:
