Note Of the 102 stories gathered here, eighty first appeared in the New Yorker. Most were revised by the author for his collections. All were written from 1953 to 1975, when Updike was in his twenties, thirties, and early forties, and are arranged here, for the first time, in the order in which they were completed.
