When this classic collection of stories first appeared-in 1962, on the author's thirtieth birthday-Arthur Mizener wrote in The New York Times Book Review: "Updike is a romantic [and] like all American romantics, that is, he has an irresistible impulse to go in memory home again in order to find himself...? The precise recollection of his own family-love, parental and marital, is vital to him; it is the matter in which the saving truth is incarnate...? Pigeon Feathers is not just a book of very brilliant short stories; it is a demonstration of how the most gifted writer of his generation is coming to maturity; it shows us that Mr. Updike's fine verbal talent is no longer pirouetting, however gracefully, out of a simple delight in motion, but is beginning to serve his deepest insight."
