This is a very nice hardcover with dust jacket. 1984 Knopf Publishing. NOT a true First Edition, nevertheless, very nice collectible. This copy is very good condition. The pages are very clean, still crisp and free of markings. The binding is tight and straight. There is only one spot that is showing a hint of binding wear, between copyright page and Chapter page. (see photos) Overall very good and rest of book tight and straight, the slight binding wear is minimal where photographed and pages still tight. Purple hardcover boards under jacket are near fine, almost like new. The dust jacket is very good, clean and still shiny with only very light shelf wear at edges.
This novel was Updike's first since the Pulitzer Prize winning Rabbit is Rich. In this novel, wonderful powers have descended upon Jane, Sukie and Alexandra now that their husbands are out of the way. Alexandria sculpts and create thunderstorms, Jane plays the cello and can fly, Sukie writes a gossip column and turns milk into cream. But, their little coven takes on dark like when a wealthy stranger arrives in town and sets up an alchemist lab. Strange things indeed ensue.
