The same door; short stories (édition 1959)

The title of John Updike's first short story collection, published when the author was twenty-seven, alludes to the old superstition that you should enter and leave a house by the same door. Thus John Nordholm, the alternately shy and brash hero of the first story here, is also the narrator of the last. Yet there is a sense in which all sixteen of these stories knock at the same door, a door that in "Dentistry and Doubt" swings open, and in "Toward Evening" remains shut. The characters are polite, nervous, diffident, as if life--or at least youth, for they are all young--were a discomfiting wait in the anteroom of the absolute. The majority of these stories depict encounters between strangers and their unexpected effects, which can be as concrete as a roomful of flowers or a bottle of wine, or as intangible as a miracle or a dream.… (plus d'informations)

Some memorable stories, focussed on late teen and early married life.
"The Happiest I've Been" was a favourite. It revived that freedom you feel once you've left your home town, with its teenage social scene, and you head out for a wider life. Boring parties and ossified friendships are sacrificed with ease if you've got a new girl waiting for you in the city. Brings back the exhilaration of a long distance drive leaving the past behind.

Ranging from touching to funny these stories are a joy to read. ( )

At 27, John Updike is an unusually gifted writer. His descriptions are fresh and evocative, his epigrams have flair, and his sense of the fashions of the times is unerring... Unfortunately. Author Updike plays his talents cool; his passion for understatement seems to rule out all passion.

And yet, how many of our present pleasures, were we to examine them closely, would shrink into nothing more than memories of past ones? What would there be left of many of our emotions, were we to reduce them to the exact quantum of pure feeling they contain by subtracting from them all that is merely reminiscence?
   —Bergson, Laughter.
But there's no vocabulary
For love withing a family, love that's lived in
But not looked at, love within the light of which
All else is seen, the love within which
All other love finds speech.
This love is silent.

   —T.S. Eliot, The Elder Statesman.
