Rabbit, Run is a 1960 novel by John Updike. It depicts five months in the life of a 26-year-old former high school basketball player named Harry 'Rabbit' Angstrom, and his attempts to escape the constraints of his life. It spawned several sequels, including Rabbit Redux, Rabbit Is Rich and Rabbit At Rest, as well as a related 2001 novella, Rabbit Remembered.

Time magazine included the novel in its TIME 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005.

Film adaptation

In 1970, the novel was made into a film directed by Jack Smight. The script was co-written by Updike and Howard B. Kreitsek. The poster reads, "3 months ago Rabbit Angstrom ran out to buy his wife cigarettes. He hasn't come home yet." The film was largely successful.
