Winner of the 1964 National Book Award for Fiction. John Updike gives a courageous and brilliant account of a conflict in gifts between an inarticulate American father and his highly articulate son. He readily takes on the risk of flamboyance in pursuing an acuteness of feeling and introduces a cast of Gods and Goddesses into rural Pennsylvania.
