Availability: In stock

A collection of witty and thoughtful musings on the game of golf.

Half-leather, bound in brown Morocco and handmade pinstripe paste paper.
This collection, by one of 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 Morocco leather and handmade, pinstripe paste paper.
