Of the Farm
Format: Paperback|Change

on 17 February 2014
In Updike's literary canon, "Of The Farm" is often overlooked. Recently reissued, you can now feast on this curious little item containing some memorable characters, a fine sense of place, and yet more of Updike's observations on married life and relationships. The story is pretty involving from the start, with a family returning to a farm that no one farms in order to spend time with the protagonist's ailing mother. There is plenty of wit, a dash of snappy dialogue, and some amazing geographical description from the untouchable Mr. Updike. Not as essential as his Rabbit works, but certainly worth a look, especially for budding writers.
