John Updike is one of the most celebrated American authors of all time. He captured middle class American life with narratives full of accessible characters and truthfully portrayed places.  He wrote with subtly brilliant sound and cadence. He published over two dozen novels and short story collections. He also published numerous letters and critical works. For all his achievements, Updike was awarded two Pulitzer Prizes for Fiction, two National Book Awards, several National Book Critics Circle Awards, and many other accolades. Rabbit Is Rich is one of his most important texts. It continues his Rabbit series which began with Rabbit, Run in 1960. That novel garnered a dedicated fanbase of readers and critics alike. Yet it was not until Rabbit Is Rich that the series received major literary awards, winning the Pulitzer, the National Book Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award, making Rabbit Is Rich one of the most acclaimed novels ever written.

This first trade edition, first printing is in very good condition. In the original full cloth, near-fine with only bumping to spine ends. Text block near-fine, only former owner’s inscription to front free endpaper. Top edge dyed red. In the original dust jacket, very good with only minor bumping, rubbing, and one closed tear to edges.

A very good first trade edition of Rabbit Is Rich.
