In the Beauty of the Lilies
"IT WILL LEAVE YOU STUNNED AND BREATHLESS. . . . With grand ambition, [Updike] not only tracks the fortunes and falls of an American family through four generations and eight decades but also creates a shimmering, celluloid portrait of the whole century as viewed through the metaphor of the movies."

Couldn't finish the book. I don't like all of the descriptions in Updike's writing style. Read full review
