Another chapter: another masterpiece
Almost the final chapter in the story and a fitting ending. American history in the making and Lockerbie are the background in this exquisite story. Updike at his best as the inevitable outcome bounces into realisation almost like a tightly fought basketball game. I loved the narrative, the style and the performance.
