Synopsis:
NATIONAL BESTSELLER
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize


When The Stories of John Cheever was originally published, it became an immediate national bestseller and won the Pulitzer Prize.  In the years since, it has become a classic.  Vintage Books is proud to reintroduce this magnificent collection.

Here are sixty-one stories that chronicle the lives of what has been called "the greatest generation."  From the early wonder and disillusionment of city life in "The Enormous Radio" to the surprising discoveries and common mysteries of suburbia in "The Housebreaker of Shady Hill" and "The Swimmer," Cheever tells us everything we need to know about "the pain and sweetness of life."

Review:
"Cheever's accomplishment in his exacting art is proportionally large, as solid as it is brilliant, and likely to endure" ( New York Review of Books)

"Currently I'm reading John Cheever's Collected Stories . My God, he was good" (David Mitchell)

"'The Swimmer' is a masterpiece of mystery, language and sorrow" (Michael Chabon)

"I reread Cheever's 'The Swimmer' late the other night. It had the effect that reading Cheever always has: it made me want to get up and start the futile task of trying to write something as measured yet mysteriously, heart-judderingly unexpected for myself" (Gordon Burns Sunday Times)

"Magnificently touching, moving and funny, and often set in an imaginary but archetypically well-heeled American suburb" (Jan Morris)

Review

Review:
The complete collection of award-winning stories from one of the finest American writers of the last century
