Most Shocking Scene in a Novel (Spoilers)
Still reading the Updike bio, I am up to his writing of RABBIT RUN, which contains the 17 page scene where Rabbit's wife, Janice, drowns their baby unintentionally. I doubt any scene has ever shocked me more. There are certain things you expect in a crime novel but not in a book like this one.
What novel or scene in one shocked you the most?
