Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0375404996, Audio Cassette)Narrator Ron Rifkin (JFK, L.A. Confidential) easily masters the astute, if often nasty, observations of Henry Bech, an occasionally honored, variably compensated New York writer of crusty disposition and unflagging sexual appetite. Drawing excerpts from his Bech books, Pulitzer Prize-winner John Updike skewers the literary life, leading Bech and listeners from post-Khrushchev Russia to a student's marijuana haze, through a brief suburban entrapment and back to Manhattan in the computer-addled 1990s. Throughout the journey, it's easy to see why Updike keeps returning to this sometimes repellent, but always fascinating character. (Running time: 6 hours, 4 cassettes) --Kimberly Heinrichs
