Rabbit at Rest

Rabbit at Rest - John Updike It won a Pulitzer Prize and now I understand why. Without a doubt the best in the series, made the first three worth reading. The language and the insights and the descriptions. Each of the books (there are four) is a time capsule of the period in which it was written. This twines all the stories together and left me satisfied at the end. Beautiful in every way.
