Author Bio
John Cheever
John Cheever's father was the owner of a shoe factory that folded after the stock market crash of 1929; in the '30s, the family moved to New York City. Cheever ended his formal education when he was expelled from Thayer Academy at 17 for smoking. (He wrote a story about the experience for the New Republic the following year.) He served in the Army in World War II and was married in 1941. For years, he was associated with The New Yorker, which published many of his short stories. He moved to Ossining, New York in 1961, and for two years in the 1970s he taught writing at Sing Sing, an experience that led to his 1977 novel, FALCONER. His daughter Susan's 1984 memoir, HOME BEFORE DARK, reveals Cheever as an alcoholic and a closeted homosexual who alternated between despair and contentment.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"When in 1969 John Cheever turned from the lovable Wapshots to the weird creatures who inhabit 'Bullet Park', most reviewers attacked or dismissed him. They were, it seems to me, dead wrong. The Wapshot books, though well made, were minor. 'Bullet Park', illusive, mysteriously built, was major--in fact, a magnificent work of fiction." - John Gardner 10/24/1971

book jacket
"In a class by itself, not only among Cheever's work, but among all the novels I know." - Joseph Heller

Library Journal
"Mr. Cheever's detailing of suburban malaise is as masterful as one has come to expect."
