About the Book



Frequently reissued with the same ISBN, but with slightly differing bibliographical details.



Book Synopsis



"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

Rabbit, Run is the book that established John Updike as one of the major American novelists of his--or any other--generation. Its hero is Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom, a onetime high-school basketball star who on an impulse deserts his wife and son. He is twenty-six years old, a man-child caught in a struggle between instinct and thought, self and society, sexual gratification and family duty--even, in a sense, human hard-heartedness and divine Grace. Though his flight from home traces a zigzag of evasion, he holds to the faith that he is on the right path, an invisible line toward his own salvation as straight as a ruler's edge.



Review Quotes




"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
