Review:

""Marry Me" is superb, sharp, witty, perceptive, honest. . . . With keen intelligence, Updike has cut a slice of life the width of one town, the height of one feverish summer, the depth of four people trying to understand why their center does not hold--and turned it into a mirror of our modern popular wisdom."--"Chicago Daily News" "Updike's most mature work . . . His writing has deepened, grown wiser and funnier, like a face that is aging well.""--The Atlantic" "It is, quite simply, Updike's best novel yet.""--Newsweek"

They follow the life of Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom, a star athlete, from his youth through the social and sexual upheavals of the 1960s, to later periods of his life, and to final decline. Updike's oeuvre has been large, consisting of novels, collections of poems, short stories, and essays.
