Présentation de l'éditeur

From his first collection, The Same Door, released in 1959, to his last, My Father’s Tears, published fifty years later, John Updike was America’s reigning master of the short story, “our second Hawthorne,” as Philip Roth described him. His evocations of small-town Pennsylvania life, and of his own religious, artistic, and sexual awakening, transfixed readers of The New Yorker and of the early collections Pigeon Feathers (1962) and The Music School (1966). In these and the works that followed—the formal experiments and wickedly tart tales of suburban adultery in Museums and Women (1972) and Problems (1979), the portraits of middle-aged couples in love and at war with aging parents and rebellious children in Trust Me (1987) and The Afterlife (1994), and the fugue-like stories of memory, desire, travel, and unquenched thirst for life in Licks of Love (2000) and My Father’s Tears (2009)—Updike displayed the virtuosic command of character, dialogue, and sensual description that was his signature.
Here, in two career-spanning volumes, are 186 unforgettable stories, from “Ace in the Hole” (1953), a sketch of a Rabbit-like ex-basketball player written when Updike was a Harvard senior, to “The Full Glass” (2008), the author’s “toast to the visible world, his own impending disappearance from it be damned.” Based on new archival research, each story is presented in its final definitive form and in order of composition, established here for the first time. This unprecedented collection of American masterpieces is not just the publishing event of the season, it is a national literary treasure.

Three years later, the premature passing of John Updike still grieves me, but this beautiful set lifted my emotions once again. As great as Updike's best novels were, to my mind, he was truly at his most consistent best in the short story medium. This volume contains all of his published stories, as well as a few rarities/variants, and is the first to be arranged chronologically by date of publication. As much as he did in the Rabbit tetrology, in his short fiction Updike seems to capture the full range of pleasures, contradictions, and deeply felt passions of the American middle class (and more often upper middle suburban), as its warriors, lovers, and often warring-lovers negotiated the shoals of married life from the era of Dwight and Mamie Eisenhower, through the era of the Clintons. Since Updike's work is clearly self-recommending, I need not say more, except to those who know him mostly through the Rabbit books: the short stories offer Updike at his most delicious -- and precise -- best.

For Updike fans this two volume collection of his short stories are wonderful sequential read of his "lucid eye" developing in the art of the New Yorker type short story. Taken as an extraordinary master of the autobiographic fictive tale of late Twentieth century middle class ethos along the Eastern Seaboard, highly recommended for writers and students of American culture.
