New essays include a discussion of the social and historical context of Updikes work and a consideration of Updikes recurrent Jewish-American character, the blocked writer Henry Bech, as a vehicle for his creator to treat the relationship between an author and his work and narratively perform the other. Several republished essays discuss Updikes Harry Rabbit Angstrom novels, his Scarlet Letter Trilogy and the novels featuring Harry Bech.
