Review:

"Very clearly and very completely a small masterpiece.""--The New York Times ""AN EXCELLENT BOOK . . . A PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER . . . [Updike] has the painter's eye for form, line, and color; the poet's ear for metaphor; and the storyteller's knack for 'and then what happened?' "--"Harper's ""Updike is a master of sheer elegance of form that shows itself time and again.""--Los Angeles Times ""Updike just happens to write the most vivid prose in America.""--Vanity Fair"
