[SR: 5780900], Audio Cassette, [EAN: 9780375404993], Abridged, Audiobook, Random House Audio, Random House Audio, Book, [PU: Random House Audio], 1998-10-13, Random House Audio, 4 cassettes / 6 hoursRead by Ron RifkinCatch up with Bech.This unique AudioBook collects John Updikes classic Bech novels, Bech: A Book (1970), Bech is Back (1982), and the latest installment, Bech at Bay."Mr. Updike finds full scope for his gifts here: for sly and cheerfully malicious pensees on contemporary life; for busy observations on human behavior."-The New YorkerBech a Book (1970):  This is where we meet him for the first time - Henry Beck, a New York writer "with his thinning curly hair and melancholy Jewish nose," whose first novel had become a minor classic.  A rich and unforgettable portrait and a satire of the literary life.Bech Is Back (1982): When Bech comes back, he roams a number of third-world countries as a cultural ambassador - astonished at his won literary celebrity.  From the era of Vietnam to the sagging end of the Seventies, his aesthetic embarrassments reveal truths about his trade and his times.Bech at Bay (1998): Our hero returns - older, but scarcely wiser.  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's not easy being Henry Beck in the post-Gutenbergian world, but somebody has to do it, and he brings to the take that indomitable mixture of grit and ennui that only Updike could make so deliciously funny., Narrator Ron Rifkin (JFK, L.A. Confidential) easily masters the astute, if often nasty, observations of Henry Bech, an occasionally honored, variably compensated New York writer of crusty disposition and unflagging sexual appetite. Drawing excerpts from his Bech books, Pulitzer Prize-winner John Updike skewers the literary life, leading Bech and listeners from post-Khrushchev Russia to a student's marijuana haze, through a brief suburban entrapment and back to Manhattan in the computer-addled 1990s. Throughout the journey, it's easy to see why Updike keeps returning to this sometimes repellent, but always fascinating character.
