A day-long interview between 79-year-old Hope Chafetz (a well-known painter and, possibly more importantly, muse to two great artists) and a young journalist named Kathryn serves as the medium for author John Updike's treatise on American art following World War II. Hope, who has married three times and raised three children, opens up under Kathryn's probing into personal and professional topics, and her memories span decades (two husbands offer echoes of Jackson Pollack and Andy Warhol). Art historians may be interested in Updike's thoughts on these matters, while other readers will simply be absorbed by his verbal artistry.
