Updike, Too Far To Go: The Maples Stories.

Updike, John. Too Far To Go: The Maples Stories. New York, Fawcett Crest, 1979. 10.5 x 18cm. 256 pages. Original softcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear, including creasing to spine. From the library of swiss - american - irish poet Chuck Kruger.

Stories that trace the decline and fall of a marriage, a history made up of the happiness of growing children and shared life, and the sadness of growing estrangement and the misunderstandings of love. In 1956, Updike published a story, “Snowing in Greenwich Village,” about a young couple, Joan and Richard Maple, at the beginning of their marriage. Over the next two decades, he returned to these characters again and again, tracing their years together raising children, finding moments of intermittent happiness, and facing the heartbreak of infidelity and estrangement. These seventeen classic stories from across John Updike's career form a luminous chronicle of the life and times of one marriage in all its rich emotional complexity.
