From the Back Cover:

"A superb performance, all grace and dazzle...a brilliant portrait of middle America." -- Life

The assumptions and obsessions that control our daily lives are explored in tantalizing detail by master novelist John Updike in this wise, witty, sexy story. Harry Angstrom -- known to all as Rabbit, one of America's most famous literary characters -- finds his dreary life shattered by the infidelity of his wife, Janice. How he resolves -- or further complicates -- his problems, makes for a novel of the first order.

"Updike owns a rare verbal genius, a gifted intelligence and a sense of tragedy made bearable by wit....A masterpiece." -- Time

"An awesomely accomplished writer...For God's sake, read the book. It may even -- will probably change your life." -- Anatole Broyard

"Dazzling." -- The Washington Post

"A triumph." -- Newsday
