☯ 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 ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "John Cheever's journals reveal the inner life of this remarkable writer and the contradictions that drove him. He loved his wife and their children, but was acutely lonely; he loved women, but he also loved men; he hated himself for his drinking, but for much of his life was dependent upon it; he was a great writer, but one whose acute levels of perception often crippled him as a person. His journals are candid, beautiful and often startling."Article| John Cheever| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Published to coincide with editor Blake Baileyas groundbreaking new biography, here are the five novels of John Cheever, together in one volume for the first time. In these dazzling works Cheever laid bare the failings and foibles of not just the ascendant postwar elite but also the fallen Yankee aristocrats who stubbornlya and often grotesquely and hilariouslyacling to their shabby gentility as the last vestige of former glory. "Complete Novels" gathers: the riotous family saga "The Wapshot Chronicle" (winner of the National Book Award) and its sequel "The Wapshot Scandal" (winner of the William Dean Howells Medal); the dark suburban drama "Bullet Park" (aa magnificent work of fiction, a John Gardner remarked in "The New York Times Book Review"); the prison novel "Falconer," a radical departure that met with both critical and popular acclaim; and the lyrical ecological fable "Oh What a Paradise It Seems." A companion volume, " Collected Stories and Other Writings," is the largest edition of Cheeveras stories ever."Article| John Cheever| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "When The Wapshot Chronicle was published in 1957, John Cheever was already recognized as a writer of superb short stories. But The Wapshot Chronicle, which won the 1958 National Book Award, established him as a major novelist. Based in part on Cheever’s adolescence in New England, the novel follows the destinies of the impecunious and wildly eccentric Wapshots of St. Botolphs, a quintessential Massachusetts fishing village. Here are the stories of Captain Leander Wapshot, venerable sea dog and would-be suicide; of his licentious older son, Moses; and of Moses’ adoring and errant younger brother, Coverly. Tragic and funny, ribald and splendidly picaresque, The Wapshot Chronicle is a family narrative in the tradition of Trollope, Dickens, and Henry James."Article| John Cheever| Statement ..."
