As we bid a sad farewell to an American master, one of Updike's finest works is released in audio format. Arthur Morey gives a nimble and precise performance as Rabbit, a 20-something mired in a new brand of suburban unhappiness endemic in midcentury America. Lost Rabbit runs from everything—an unhappy marriage, his child, and his unfulfilling job—in search of anything that might give his life meaning. Narrator Morey’s voice has the necessary yet subtle mix of apathy, irritability, and masculine naïveté. Updike described his writing as giving "the mundane its beautiful due," and he has succeeded to that end with this book. Morey's performance is a compliment to this canonical work of American literature. L.P. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
