From BBC Radio 4 - Book at Bedtime: John Updike's masterful Rabbit quintet established Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom as the quintessential American White middle class male

From BBC Radio 4 - Book at Bedtime: John Updike's masterful Rabbit quintet established Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom as the quintessential American White middle class male. The first book Rabbit, Run was published in 1960 to critical acclaim. Rabbit Redux is the second in the series, published in 1971 and charting the end of the sixties - featuring, among other things, the first American moon landing and the Vietnam War.

In this sequel to Rabbit, Run, John Updike resumes the spiritual quest of his anxious Everyman, Harry Rabbit Angstrom. Ten years have passed; the impulsive former athlete has become a paunchy thirty-six-year-old conservative, and Eisenhower’s becalmed America has become 1969’s lurid turmoil of technology, fantasy, drugs, and violence. Rabbit is abandoned by his family, his home invaded by a runaway and a radical, his past reduced to a ruined inner landscape; still he clings to semblances of decency and responsibility, and yearns to belong and to believe.

John Updike was popular for many of his previous books but he rose to great eminence with his novel ‘Rabbit Run’ that was published in 1960. They are ‘Rabbit Redux’ (1971), ‘Rabbit is Rich’ (1981) and ‘Rabbit at Rest’ (1990). Rabbit is Rich’ won him the ‘Pulitzer Prize’ in 1982

Talk about Rabbit Redux

John Updike is a 20th Century author, winner of two Pulitzer Prizes for two books in the "Rabbit" series, "Rabbit is Rich" and "Rabbit at Rest." "Rabbit Run" and "Rabbit Redux" are first two in the series and one should read "Rabbit Run" before reading "Rabbit Redux." They are an intimate portrait of the life and times of Harry Angstrom (nick-named Rabbit), who lives in the the early to mid-20th Century. Why is Harry's life of interest? Because Updike's unique ability to put words together that convey the depth and beauty of ordinary lives and ordinary surroundings is captivating. I felt very involved in Harry's life and the lives of his family and friends and couldn't wait to get back to it after having to put it down for a while. I really enjoyed it and think you will, too.

If you are new to Updike's Rabbit books, do it right and start from the beginning, Rabbit Run (yeah, Eminem can relate to the problems of modern everyman) will get you hooked, Rabbit Redux is not the greatest (the middle, preachy part can practically be skipped) but Rabbit is Rich and Rabbit at Rest are both masterpieces. I've read both of these novels more times over the years than I'd like to admit. Read the first two then savor the last two.

There's even a little postscript, addendum, whatever novella that's ok found in Licks of Love short story collection.

Updike creates characters you invest in. Characters who, like us all, represent the best and worst of Americans.

He started out in his father's footsteps as an actor at age 4. He got into writing from one of his mentors. He came to Hollywood as a writer, then branched out into acting and directing. His artistic talent enabled him to schetch out how seans were to be play and cut down the shooting time considerablely. One of his first pictures was directing the "The Maltese Falcon" Bogie got the part when the original actor didn't want to take a chance with a new director. He and Bogie (and Betty) were close friends until Bogarte died.
In his book he is frank to admit he did some dumb things. He rationalized that everyone has his bad moments, and didn't let those things (like 5 marriages, etc)drag him down.
His profesional writing skills make his autobiography good reading.

It's understandable why learned Pulitzer members awarded the truly gifted writer, Mr. Updike, their prize. They probably could relate to Harry Angstrom and the other people who inhabit "Rabbit is Rich." It's putting it mildly to say that deep introspection isn't these character's strong suit. This book successfully depicts the zeitgeist of middle-class America. The scenes take place in 1979-1980 just prior to the Reagan Revolution, but easily could be applied to today's mindset. Rabbit is a complex character, but not the brightest bunny in the world. Sometimes I felt sorry for him and other times there was a massive urge to smack him aside the head with a two-by-four in the hopes of knocking some sense into the muddle-headed layabout. The superficial nature of this group's middle-aged existence is consumed with postering, sex (or lack of variety thereof), drinking, money, as well as silently fantasizing about other people's lives and how it might be greener on the other side of the fence. It's difficult to like any of the characters. Heck, I KNOW people who live this kind of life. It isn't necessary to have read the two prior installments, "Rabbit, Run" and "Rabbit Redux," but it does help in some of the references to what has happened in the past. Mr. Updike's book resonanted much more than the previous two works probably because I'm 49 which is the same age range as Rabbit. Man, it's a very good read but a real downer.

John Updike is the best contemporary writer I have read. As a Language Arts teacher, I appreciate the tremendous level of craft and mastery of the language as I read again this series. After forty years, it still stands up nicely. The characters are still relatable and coherent, given the times and the currents running through it.
Page after page, I am amazed at the skill that Updike shows for the plot and the characters in it. Over the years, I loaned my hard-cover copies of the Rabbit series and I never got them back. Now I have the resources so I can get those books back. It is with extreme pleasure that I read this book again.

This was John Updike's last volume of his "Rabbit" tetralogy---the inevitable conclusion of the life of the main character---who, it would seem, in completing the flow of his " main-street"-type life, retires to Florida to spend the remainder of his years. This four-part series, each volume written per decade, is meant to depict the main character in a more average "American" environment and lifestyle and at time imparts an almost heroic pathos to it, occasionally very moving. Interestingly, this tetrology is by the author of well-known works which depicted, for the most part, societal interaction among the more socio-economic and intellectual elite of his generation.

The book was in great condition. Binding fine, no loose pages, pages were pristine, appears unread(ever). dust cover OK. Great book that
is even better than Rabbit Runs. Reading the whole set now. Up to last, Rabbit at Rest. I love John Updike.
