Product Description

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)

Book Description

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

From the Back Cover

'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

This outstanding collection by Pulitzer prize-winning novelist John Cheever, show the power and range of one of the finest short story writers of the last century. Stories of love and of squalor, they include masterpieces such as 'The Swimmer' and 'Goodbye, My Brother' and date from the time of his honourable discharge from the Army at the end of the Second World War.

'Remarkable' Guardian
