9780141188980: Couples

In COUPLES, John Updike explores the psychosexual natures of a group of young middle-class marrieds in Tarbox, Massachusetts.

Against the background of general philandering and deceit, couples develop deep attachments punctuated by occasional frenzies of passion and intrigue.

Regarded as one of America's best authors, Updike, a Pulitzer Prize winner, writes with painful insight about the state of marital fidelity in the modern age.

X-rated for sex and language.

The provocative novel about sex in suburbia, striking in its complete sexual frankness and rightly praised as an artful, seductive, savagely graphic portrayal of love, marriage and adultery in America.
