"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
"Cheever's deepest, most challenging book. It has the tone of a summing-up and the tension of a vision." —The New York Times
"A master American storyteller." —Time
"In a class by itself, not only among Cheever's work but among all the novels I know." —Joseph Heller
"John Cheever's prose is always a pleasure to read because it is both graceful and governed." —Chicago Tribune
