    原文不短喔

    所以我先貼個大綱上來

    作者厄普代克以「兔子」哈利·安斯特朗為主角,繼續創作有《兔子歸來》(Rabbit Redux,1971年)、《兔子富了》(Rabbit Is Rich,1981年)以及《兔子安息》(Rabbit at Rest,1990年),記錄了美國自二戰後40年來的社會歷史的全貌,內容涉及越南戰爭、登陸月球、能源危機,有人稱之為「美國斷代史」。《兔子四部曲》中充斥著性的描寫,有兔子婚外情,兔子換妻,兔子一夜情,甚至與兒媳上床,「兔子」的「一生是一段向女人身子里鑽的旅程」,可以說兔子走過風光無限又危險至極的性愛之旅。

    1981年發表《兔子富了》(Rabbit Is Rich),故事是兔子繼承了岳父的日本汽車事業,經濟開始富裕,兔子加入鄉村俱樂部、打高爾夫球、到加勒比海度假。

    Rabbit Is Rich is a 1981 novel by John Updike. It is the third novel of the four-part series which begins with Rabbit, Run and Rabbit Redux, and concludes with Rabbit At Rest. There is also a related 2001 novella, Rabbit Remembered. Rabbit Is Rich was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1982.

    Plot summary

    This third novel of Updike's Rabbit series examines the life of Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom, a one-time high school basketball star, who has reached a paunchy middle-age without relocating from Brewer, Pennsylvania, the poor, fictional city of his birth. Harry and Janice, his wife of twenty-two years, live comfortably, having inherited her late father's Toyota dealership. He is indeed rich, but Harry's persistent problems — his wife's drinking, his troubled son's schemes, his libido, and spectres from his past — complicate life. Having achieved a lifestyle that would have embarrassed his working-class parents, Harry is not greedy, but neither is he ever quite satisfied. Harry has become somewhat enamored of a country-club friend's young wife. He also has to deal with the indecision and irresponsibility of Nelson, his son, who is a student at Kent State University. Throughout the book, Harry wonders about his former lover Ruth, and whether she had ever given birth to their child.
