Review:

"John Cheever is an enchanted realist, and his voice, in his luminous short stories and in incomparable novels like Bullet Park and Falconer, is as rich and distinctive as any of the leading voices of postwar American literature." --Philip Roth

"As stories go, as compellingly readable narratives of a certainsort of people in a certain time and place--our time and place--John Cheever's stories are, simply, the best." --The Washington Post

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

"Not merely the publishing event of the 'season' but a grand occasion in English literature." --The New York Times

Book Description:

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