The Stories of John Cheever

 
9780140055757: The Stories of John Cheever

Winner of the 1979 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
THE STORIES OF JOHN CHEEVER live in the community of emotions and dreams. The men and women are creatures of beauty, tragedy and restless privilege. And always they soar from the sadness of life to the older and more elegant realms of light, desire, memory, and love....
"Dazzling."
THE BOSTON GLOBE

Review:

"These stories," writes Cheever in the preface to this Pulitzer Prize winning collection of stories, "seem at times to be stories of a long-lost world when the city of New York was still filled with a river light, when you heard the Benny Goodman quartets from a radio in the corner stationary store, and when almost everybody wore a hat. Here is the last of that generation of chain smokers who woke the world in the morning with their coughing, who used to get stoned at cocktail parties and perform obsolete dance steps like 'the Cleveland Chicken,' set sail for Europe on ships, who were truly nostalgic for love and happiness, and whose gods were as ancient as yours and mine, whoever you are."

From the Back Cover:

"Cheever has created a universe of unforgettable people, places and things." -Chicago Sun-Times

"Profound and daring...some of the most wonderful stories any American has written." -The Boston Globe
