Summary
In this posthumous collection of John Updike's art writings, readers are again treated to remarkably elegant essays in which the psychological concerns of the novelist drive the eye from work to work until a deep understanding of the art emerges. Always Looking is, like everything else he wrote, an invitation to look, to see, to apprehend the visual world through the eyes of a connoisseur
