I believe this is the first time I've ever read anything by Updike, which is a shame, given the extent of his works - and how much I enjoyed this tiny little book. Updike's style as well as the atmosphere and subject matter of these stories somehow reminded be of Anne Tyler, whose writing I like very much. I definitely must get my hands on his novels.

8 out of 10

Very nice short stories, some of them brilliant and still accurate though written in the 50'.

Thank you so much for sending me this book! I'm not sure I've read any Updike before, either, so this will be a good place to start. :-)
