"Brilliant and poignant . . . By his compassion, clarity of insight, and crystal-bright prose, [John Updike] makes Rabbit's sorrow his and our own."--"The Washington Post"
"The power of the novel comes from a sense, not absolutely unworthy of Thomas Hardy, that the universe hangs over our fates like a great sullen hopeless sky. There is real pain in the book, and a touch of awe."--Norman Mailer, "Esquire"
"A lacerating story of loss and of seeking, written in prose that is charged with emotion but is always held under impeccable control."--"Kansas City Star"

Harry Angstrom was a star basketball player in high school and that was the best time of his life. Now in his mid-20s, his work is unfulfilling, his marriage is moribund, and he tries to find happiness with another woman. But happiness is more elusive than a medal, and Harry must continue to run--from his wife, his life, and from himself, until he reaches the end of the road and has to turn back.... --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
