New York: Knopf, 1963.
The copious Updike's early third novel, in which he embues a local school teacher's family troubles with a mythic significance.
His plight is compared to that of Charon, the noblest of the Centaurs in Greek myth.
Book is in almost perfect condition, with paler speckle to pink top-stain on pages.
Jacket is very good front and back, but head and tail of spine have suffered some minor loss.
