Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

This Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of Cheever's short fiction features "The Swimmer," "The Enormous Radio," "The Housebreaker of Shady Hill," and fifty-eight other stories written and published over the past three decades.


Review:

"Cheever is a writer whose faults have an unusually close connection to his strengths. The imaginative identification with the upper-middle class which allows him to depict their mores and dilemmas with such vivacity entails a narrowness of social range and a sentimental snobbery which can get the best of him when his guard is down....[But] Cheever's accomplishment in his exactly art is proportionally large, as solid as it is brilliant, and likely to endure."

John Cheever

Review:

"This massive retrospective...is not only splendid from beginning to endpaper; it charts one of the most important bodies of work in contemporary letters."

Robert Towers, New York Review of Books, 11/09/1978
