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.

" 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
