More than three decades after the events described in The Witches of Eastwick, Alexandra, Jane, and Sukie--widowed, aging, and with their occult powers fading--return for the summer to the Rhode Island town where they once made piquant scandal and sometimes deadly mischief.

In this wise and wicked satire on the way we make peace with our pasts, John Updike proves himself a wizard on every page.
