Description

"BUBBLY AND QUIZZICAL AND LUMINOUS."
--Los Angeles Times
"JOYFUL . . . THE JACK NICKLAUS OF GOLF WRITING . . . The 30 entries in this collection, drawn mainly from magazine pieces, constitute a championship round. . . . This unbridled appreciation of golf's mystical opportunities for grace and redemption will enthrall even those who have never followed an 80-yard worm-burner with an elegant chip to the pin."
--People
"VINTAGE UPDIKE AND A RARE TREAT FOR GOLFERS."
--San Francisco Chronicle
"A BOOK WRITTEN UNDER A CLEAR BLUE SKY WITH AN UTTERLY PURE SWING . . . [ending] with a handful of essays on the metaphysics of golf and great golf gurus, both writers and caddies. Here, Updike waltzes about the heavens of Nabokov, in pure esthetic bliss. And here his transcendental agonies and anxieties fuse into split-second moments of impact that lift us from sand pit to rhapsody."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer
