    Description
    Published just four years after John Updike graduated from Harvard, The Poorhouse Fair is a brilliant allegory about charity. The setting is a poorhouse - repository of the old, the infirm, and the impoverished - on the day of the annual summer fair. The people are the vividly realized, unforgettable characters that only Updike can create. Short and succinct, The Poorhouse Fair speaks to those fears all of us have of growing not old, but dependent.
