Over four novels (Rabbit, Run, Rabbit Redux, Rabbit is Rich, Rabbit at Rest) and one novella (Rabbit Remembered), John Updike created one of 20th-century literature’s most memorable characters. Harry “Rabbit” Angstrom, a former star basketball player for his small-town Pennsylvania high school, is the protagonist of the series. Published at almost exact ten-year intervals, the Rabbit books each incorporate the concerns of their respective decades while bringing us deeper into the life of a sometimes appalling, but always authentic, American man. Updike won Pulitzer Prizes for both Rabbit is Rich and Rabbit at Rest.
