9780141038032: The Widows of Eastwick

When the three witches - now old, remarried and widowed - decide to go back to Eastwick to spend a summer together, many things have changed. Darryl Van Horne is gone. Their husbands and lovers have gone. The lithe and supple bodies with which they wrecked marriages and wreaked havoc many years before have gone - and have been replaced with the quiet aches and encumbrances of age. But a chemistry still crackles between the three and magic still lingers in the Eastwick air, and soon it becomes clear that there are those around them who remember them, and wish them ill.

The Widows of Eastwick takes the mischief and enchantment of The Witches of Eastwick and reshapes it in a new emotional landscape, resulting in a sensitive study of the passing of youth and a darkly funny novel that shines with luminous sexual reminiscences and satirical observations about modern America.

Product Description:

More than three decades have passed since the witches of Eastwick - Alexandra, Jane and Sukie - weaved their wicked spell on the sleepy Rhode Island town. Since then the three divorcees have left, remarried, and become widows. Meeting up again, they decide to go back to Eastwick one last time. But what enchantments will they find? There may no longer be a diabolical Darryl Van Home, but memory - as much as magic - continues to haunt the town. For among the familiar streets, where the witches enjoyed their status as free, lusty and empowered women, there are those who remember them, and wish them ill... Format: 11 sm x 18 sm.

Review:

'This isn't writing, it's magic. His sorcery is startlingly fresh, page upon page' New York Times Book Review 'Updike is the Master, and no fan of his will want to miss The Widows of Eastwick' Sunday Telegraph 'The facility with which Updike turns out those lovingly cadenced, alliterative sentences is an awe-inspiring spectacle' Guardian
