The Short Stories of John Cheever
The Stories of John Cheever
New York: Knopf, 1978.
First printings of this monumental collection are now rare, representing one of America's finest, though most mournful writers on suburban life.
Cheever's own life was a great deal racier than those of his gently despairing businessmen, who commute to Manhattan every day.
A wonderful stylist of the '50s and '60s.
Owner name, otherwise a perfect copy of this classic collection, with unfaded jacket.
