"Updike wrote this sequel to RABBIT, RUN in 1971. Harry Angstrom, otherwise known as Rabbit, finds his life crashing down around him after he discovers his wife is having an affair. Written in classic Updike prose--replete with rousing descriptions and true-to-form dialogue--the story is the perfect medium for narrator Arthur Morey to demonstrate his storytelling ability. Morey's voice takes listeners inside Updike's world, where everything is intensely real, melancholic, and at times downright bizarre. Twisting his voice into various accents and fragile emotional states, Morey also portrays Jill, a wealthy teen on the run, and Skeeter, an African-American war veteran. Morey's performance gives listeners a backstage pass to Updike's story, allowing us to develop a kinship with these characters. L.B. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
