The assumptions and obsessions that control our daily lives are explored in tantalizing detail by master novelist John Updike in this wise, witty, and sexy story. Harry Angstrom—known to all as Rabbit, one of America's most famous literary characters—finds his dreary life shattered by the infidelity of his wife, Janice. How he resolves or further complicates his problems makes for a novel of the first order.

The first of the Rabbit series I read. The voice of Skeeter is one-of-a-kind. Updike becae one of my favorites.

Updike's second novel in his Rabbit sequence is also one of his darkest, most vitriolic and most problematic book. While Rabbit functions as a kind of everyman, you wonder if an everyman character is supposed to be both so unlikable and so unsympathetic. There is a long part of the book in which he debates with a black radical and while Updike is addressing what were serious issues in the late 60s, I felt uncomfortable with him trying to give voice to black concerns, politics and culture.
