9780140113631: Trust Me (English and Spanish Edition)

Here is trust betrayed -- and fulfilled. Here are husbands and wives as only Updike knows them, leaving each other, loving each other, often at the same time. Here is passion ignited and quenched, absurd hope, ineffectual regret. Here is life as we live it, in twenty-two stories of uncommon beauty and pathos from a master storyteller at the peak of his brilliant career . . .

From the Inside Flap:

John Updike's short story collections are occasions for celebration -- the pleasures to be found in them are great indeed. This marvelous volume contains one gem after another, stories to be savored one at a time and returned to again and again.
Here is trust betrayed -- and fulfilled. Here are parents struggling to maintain that fragile claim on their offspring's childish awe....Here are husbands and wives as only Updike knows them, leaving each other, loving each other, often at the same time. Here are passion ignited and quenched, absurd hope, regret at the last minute. Here is life as we live in it, in twenty-two stories of uncommon beauty and pathos from a master storyteller at the peak of his brilliant career.

From the Back Cover:

"Dazzling...We certainly can trust him -- we are in very good hands."

-- The New York Times

"It is in his short stories that we find Updike's most assured work...and almost without fail they give pleasure, a quality not to be taken lightly."

-- The Washington Post Book World

"For thirty years, John Updike has been among our most clearsighted, hard-working, emotionally courageous, technically adept, playful, serious, and productive artists....Read him."

-- USA Today
