Bullet Park

 
9780224617185: Bullet Park

Eliot Nailles loves his wife and son to distraction; Paul Hammer is a bastard named after a common household tool. Neighbours in Bullet Park, the two become fatefully linked by the mysterious binding power of their names in Cheever's sharp and funny hymn to the dubious normality of the American suburbs.

Review:

"In a class by itself, not only among Cheever's work but among all novels I know" -- Joseph Heller "Cheever's deepest, most challenging book" New York Times "John Cheever's prose is always a pleasure to read because it is both graceful and governed" Chicago Tribune "A master American storyteller" Time "Cheever writes a restrained, half -mocking hymn to the delusions of comfortable America which is a pleasure to read" Guardian
