About this item

"S" By John Updike



Additional Details

------------------------------



"S. "is the story of Sarah P. Worth, a thoroughly modern spiritual seeker who has become enamored of a Hindu mystic called the Arhat. A native New Englander, she goes west to join his ashram in Arizona, and there struggles alongside fellow "sannyasins" in the difficult attempt to subdue ego and achieve "moksha. "S." details her adventures in letters and tapes dispatched to her husband, her daughter, her brother, her dentist, her hairdresser, and her psychiatrist--messages cleverly designed to keep her old world in order while she is creating for herself a new one. This is Hester Prynne's side of the triangle described by Hawthorne's "Scarlet Letter;" it is also a burlesque of the quest for enlightenment, and an affectionate meditation on American womanhood.
