Odd Jobs: Essays and Criticism - Updike, John

John Updike's fourth collection of nonfiction is his biggest and richest yet. The years have brought to him an increasing number of "odd jobs", to which he has wittily responded. Here he contemplates our national monuments, the female body, the Fourth of July, the Gospel of Matthew, other writers, moralists, aspects of science, and more.
