Product description


"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

From the Inside Flap

When The Stories of John Cheever was originally published, it became an immediate national bestseller and won the Pulitzer Prize. In the years since, it has become a classic. Vintage Books is proud to reintroduce this magnificent collection.
Here are sixty-one stories that chronicle the lives of what has been called "the greatest generation." From the early wonder and disillusionment of city life in "The Enormous Radio" to the surprising discoveries and common mysteries of suburbia in "The Housebreaker of Shady Hill" and "The Swimmer," Cheever tells us everything we need to know about "the pain and sweetness of life."
