In this sequel to Rabbit, Run, John Updike resumes the spiritual quest of his anxious Everyman, Harry “Rabbit” Angstrom. Ten years have passed; the impulsive former athlete has become a paunchy thirty-six-year-old conservative, and Eisenhower’s becalmed America has become 1969’s lurid turmoil of technology, fantasy, drugs, and violence. Rabbit is abandoned by his family, his home invaded by a runaway and a radical, his past reduced to a ruined inner landscape; still he clings to semblances of decency and responsibility, and yearns to belong and to believe.

"Rabbit" Angstrom, failed hero of "Rabbit Run", is back. He has changed, somewhat for the worse. His marriage is collapsing, his job is becoming redundant and outside pressures disturb his peace of mind; but in the end, he achieves a kind of peace, the peace of exhaustion, perhaps.
