In Love with a Wanton by John Updike

Availability: In stock

A collection of witty and thoughtful musings on the game of golf.
Half-leather, brown Moroccan goatskin and handmade, pinstripe paste-paper in a black cloth, solander box.
This collection, by one America’s most beloved authors and essayists, brings together four of John Updike's previously published works on the game of golf: ”Playing With Better Players,” “In Love With a Wanton,” “Walking Insomnia,” and “On Being a Senior Golfer.” In 37 letterpress printed pages--simply and beautifully illustrated by Tania Lee--Updike examines golf as both a game and a way of life. With his characteristic wit, humor, and insight he draws on the rich history of the game, the technique, the focus, the anxiety, the ecstasy, to create a work as compelling as it is entertaining. This edition is signed by the author, the illustrator, and the publisher, and bound in a combination of brown Moroccan goatskin and handmade, pinstripe paste-paper.
