Publisher's Summary

In John Updike's fourth and final novel about ex-basketball player Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom, the hero has acquired heart trouble, a Florida condo, and a second grandchild. His son, Nelson, is behaving erratically; his daughter-in-law, Pru, is sending out mixed signals; and his wife, Janice, decides in mid-life to become a working girl. As, though the winter, spring, and summer of 1989, Reagan's debt-ridden, AIDS-plagued America yields to that of George Bush, Rabbit explores the bleak terrain of late middle age, looking for reasons to live.

This may very well be the best way to experience Rabbit at Rest. The performance is excellent and being of the right vintage, I can relate to many of Rabbit's feeling.

If I write a long review, many would not read it. So let me just plead with you to experience the entire series starting with Rabbit Run. Just experience it. You won't be disappointed.

Didn't like the story or the reader's voice. Can't imagine how this won a Pulitzer.
