Review:

"Cheever's debut novel is skittish, mercurial and ringing with life" ( Guardian)

"The best introduction to Cheever's work...richly inventive and vividly told" ( New York Times Magazine)

"A tapestry woven from the threads of emotion, tragedy, comedy...and the irony so wonderfully evident in the author's short stories...a literary mosaic...Cheever is a pleasure to read" ( San Francisco Chronicle)

"A brilliantly written novel, vastly and sometimes sadly, amusing" ( Time)

Book Description:

The first novel John Cheever wrote is a wonderful introduction to his writing; clever, funny, charming and bursting with life
