♥ Book Title : John Cheever Revisited
☯ Full Synopsis : ""The St. Botolphs of Cheever's early stories and the upscale, Westchester-like towns - Shady Hill, Proxmire Manor, and Bullet Park - of his later work find their complex companions in William Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha County and John Updike's Rabbit's world. Cheever laid out the parameters of this creative world in his very first published story, "Expelled," which appeared in the New Republic in 1930 when Cheever was only 18. The young protagonist of this autobiographical story would be the first of many Cheever heroes to fall from what Meanor describes as "a condition of Edenic happiness and childlike innocence into the chaos and pain of adult knowledge." Moses Wapshot of Cheever's first novel, The Wapshot Chronicle (1958), Neddy Merrill of the critically acclaimed short story "The Swimmer" (1964), and even Zeke Farragut of Cheever's novel of redemption, Falconer (1977), struggle to reclaim some remnant of an earlier, lost happiness." "Loneliness, fear of aging, family disintegration, alcoholic obsessiveness, sexual desperation, the threat of financial ruin, and a reliance on illusion form the dark core of Cheever's work, creative transformations of some of the themes that dominated his life. Throughout this volume Meanor distinguishes the autobiographical strains in the fiction by drawing from Cheever's documents of his struggles - especially with alcoholism and bisexuality - in The Letters of John Cheever (1988) and The Journals of John Cheever (1991)." "Meanor fleshes out both biblical and mythological motifs in the stories and the novels; his study is perhaps the first to treat the possible symbolic interpretations of names of characters and places so thoroughly. Burdened by a biblical sense of shame and guilt, Cheever's characters find fleeting, life-giving moments of psychological release "in the celebratory paganism of Greek and Roman myth," Meanor writes, in love, passion, the pleasures of the body."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

☯ Full Synopsis : "In these journals, the experiences of one of the most renowned twentieth-century American writers come to life with fascinating, wholly revealing detail.John Cheever's journals provide peerless insights into the creation of his novels and stories. But they are equally the record of a complex, often dark, always closely observed inner world. No American writer of comparable stature has left such an unreservedly revealing and moving account of himself: his family life, his literary life, and his emotional life.

♥ Book Title : The Letters of John Cheever
☯ Full Synopsis : "John Cheever, novelist, short-story writer, and winner of the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize, was a prolific writer of letters, sending as many as thirty in a week. These letters, culled from thousands written to famous writers and celebrities - including John Updike, Josephine Herbst, William Maxwell, Saul Bellow, Hope Lange and Philip Roth - his family, friends, and lovers, paint an intimate and surprising self-portrait that is as vivid as any character Cheever invented. Edited and annotated by his son Benjamin, Cheever's letters trace his development as a writer and as a man. They reveal him to be complex, flawed, and full of contradictions. On display are not just his ambitions and weaknesses, his alcoholism and his cloaked bisexuality, but also the evolution of his wit and style and, most of all, his love of life."Article| John Cheever| Statement ..."
