9780140170580: The Complete Henry Bech

Henry Bech, the author of "Travel Light", has been scrutinized by reviewers, academics, critics and readers. Suffering from impotence and writer's block, Bech finds renewed fame when he returns to America and "Think Big", his blockbuster, hits the bookstalls. Bech returns in "Bech in Czech".

Review:

"A deft poke at what it means to be a writer in America. " ( New York Times)

"In his extraordinarily productive career, John Updike has given us a multitude of memorable characters, but none more lovable than the high-minded, mild-mannered, rather hapless writer Henry Bech." ( Chicago Tribune)

"As imaginative territory, literary Manhattan has proved irresistible to Updike the satirist, and he has done it full justice and then some in his volumes of stories concerning the doings of New York novelist Henry Bech." ( The New Criterion)

"

A mordantly comic look at literary life.

" ( Time)

From the Publisher:

The Bech stories—collected in one volume for the first time, and featuring a final, series-capping story, "His Oeuvre"—cast an affectionate eye on the famously unproductive Jewish-American writer, offering up a stream of wit, whimsy, and lyric pungency unmatched in American letters.
"One of Updike’s best creations." —Life
