Late to the treasures of the Updike short stories, I have listened to his reading of *A & P* twice. To me, this audiobook is worth the price for this story.
A story of a high school grocery bagger's quixotic honor and chivalry in protecting the dignity of young Ladies (beauty) on a quick run to the A&P on a summer's day stirs again in me the wonders and idealism and beauty of youth as well as my belief and hope that chivalry still isn't dead and will never die.
I had no real problems getting past Mr. Updike's nasally accent to get swept up in his stories.

I wish John Updike had recorded every word he ever wrote. The prose is glorious. And I could listen to him read forever. "Pigeon feathers." "Alligators". Has anyone ever done adolescence better?
