ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. East Dane Designer Men's Fashion. Updike adds the touch of inserting into the narrative the story of Chiron and the greek gods. Wonderfully done, very touching. This book is fantasy woven together with just enough reality to keep it fun. It's a beautiful relationship between a father and son with a backstory full of fantasy, an intriguing mistress, and a dreadful boss.
Add in a dangerous winter storm and you have a book that's hard to put down.

You'll be hoping for a snow day so you can read it. Besides the Rabbit series one of my favorite. I would recommend it. This book beautifully mixes modern and classical writing. Blending in Greek myths and characters to explain the story was ingenious.
The Centaur : John Updike :
I truly recommend this book for anyone looking for a challenging and different prospective of the Greek tale of Chiron. I believe this may be Updike's most perfect novel, expressing his deep love and appreciation for his own flawed, remarkable father, and relating the trials and joys of his own adolescence. The beauty and eloquence of the writing moved me.
