Sally is big, blonde and pampered. She’s married to Richard. But she loves Jerry. Jerry loves Sally in return, but he’s also still in love with his wife Ruth.

And that no one knows quite when to stop.

Rabbit, Run

by John Updike

ISBN: 9780141187839

It’s 1959 and Harry ‘Rabbit’ Angstrom, one time high school sports superstar, is going nowhere. At twenty-six he is trapped in a second-rate existence – stuck with a fragile, alcoholic wife, a house full of overflowing ashtrays and discarded glasses, a young son and a futile job. With no way to fix things, he resolves to flee from his family and his home in Pennsylvania, beginning a thousand-mile journey that he hopes will free him from his mediocre life. Because, as he knows only too well, ‘after you’ve been first-rate at something, no matter what, it kind of takes the kick out of being second-rate’.
