About this product
- DescriptionNewly revised by the author for this edition, and printed together in one volume for the first time, Updike's four Rabbit vels chronicle the history of a man and a nation from the 1950s to the 1980s. Harry 'Rabbit' Angstrom, athlete, is Mr Middle America. Dazzling in style, tender in feeling, often erotic in description and coruscating with realistic details which recreate a world in each vel, these books give a complete picture of their age.
