Product Description:

Stunning and brutally powerful, Falconer tells the story of a man named Farragut, his crime and punishment, and his struggle to remain a man in a universe bent on beating him back into childhood. Only John Cheever could deliver these grand themes with the irony, unforced eloquence, and exhilarating humor that make Falconer such a triumphant work of the moral imagination.

Review:

"A whole swathe of poor and underprivileged America is evoked by one of the country's most rarified stylists" (James Wood)

"One of the most important novels of our time.. Read it and be ennobled" ( New York Times)

"Splendid...it is rough, it is elegant, it is pure. It is also indispensable, if you earnestly desire to know what is happening to the human soul in the USA." (Saul Bellow)

"One of our truly fine writers...Moving and excellent" ( Washington Post)
