Toward the end of the Vietnam era, in a snug little Rhode Island seacoast town, wonderful powers have descended upon Alexandra, Jane, and Sukie, bewitching divorcées with sudden access to all that is female, fecund, and mysterious. Alexandra, a sculptor, summons thunderstorms; Jane, a cellist, floats on the air; and Sukie, the local gossip columnist, turns milk into cream. Their happy little coven takes on new, malignant life when a dark and moneyed stranger, Darryl Van Horne, refurbishes the long-derelict Lenox mansion and invites them in to play. Thenceforth scandal flits through the darkening, crooked streets of Eastwick—and through the even darker fantasies of the town’s collective psyche.

    " The king of Dick Lit! John Updike makes me happy in a way no other male author can. This book is a hilarious read. It's a book I want on my shelves. "

    " This novel was great and disappointing at the same time. Great, because Updike's writing style was very easy to get wrapped up in. Loved the idea of these women and their "cone of power" doing both good and evil. It was disappointing because I kept comparing it to the movie. I know I shouldn't have, but it's been one of my favorites and I couldn't control my brain. Therefore the story left much to be desired. It didn't really seem to me as if the witches "summoned" Van Horne, he just showed up and left. Very anticlimactic. "
