The Centaur, Paperback


In a small Pennsylvania town in the late 1940s, schoolteacher George Caldwell yearns to find some meaning in his life.

Alone with his teenage son for three days in a blizzard, Caldwell sees his son grow and change as he himself begins to lose touch with his life.

Interwoven with the myth of Chiron, the noblest centaur, and his own relationship to Prometheus, "The Centaur" is one of John Updike's most brilliant and unusual novels.
