Description
Information
Henry Bech, the moderately well known Jewish-American writer who served as the hero of Bech: A Book and Bech Is Back has become older but scarcely wiser. In these five new chapters of his life he is still at bay, pursued by the hounds of desire and anxiety, of unbridled criticism and publicity in a literary world ever more cheerfully crass.
'It is good to see the famous Henry Bech, litterateur and lover, growing old, still alive and still kicking at life's blessings.'
Carol Shields, The Times Literary Supplement

'When Updike created Bech he was something of a rival to Updike himself... nearly three decades on, his take on the literary life remains as powerful and revealing as ever.'
