Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK by John Updike.

"In a small New England town in the late 1960s, there lived three witches. Alexandra Spoffard, sculptress, could create thunderstorms. Jane Smart, a cellist, could fly. The local gossip columnist, Sukie Rougemont, could turn milk into cream. Divorced but hardly celibate, content but always ripe for adventure, our three wonderful witches one day found themselves under the spell of the new man in town, Darryl Van Horne, whose hot tub was the scene of some rather bewitching delights. To tell you any more, gentle reader, would be to spoil the marvelous joy of reading this hexy, sexy novel by the incomparable John Updike."

"A wicked entertainment with lots (and lots) of sex . . . In book after book, Updike's fine, funny impressionistic art strips the full casings of everydayness from objects we have known all our lives and makes them shine with fresh new connections."
- The New Republic

"A dazzling book . . . A very funny and very unsettling story of what witchcraft might look like if it were around today . . . Updike is devilishly clever."
- Los Angeles Times

"A Great Deal Of Fun To Read . . . Fresh, constantly entertaining . . . The text also abounds with delightful aphorisms for these times . . . John Updike remains a wizard of language and observation."
- The Philadelphia Inquirer
