Harry “Rabbit” Angstrom, the main character in John Updike's Rabbit, Run, is a former high school basketball star, who has developed into a pig-headed lecher. His wife is a dim-witted lush. His mistress is an over-weight former whore. Updike describes their thoughts and feelings in long-winded prose bloated with metaphors and similes that taste contrived. The story line itself is simple. Rabbit keeps running away from responsibilities and commitments. Nothing gets resolved. Things are left in such a muddle that the book begs for a sequel. If you count Rabbit Remembered, there are four. It's going to be a long time before I get around to reading them.
