O'Hara challenges the critical view that Cheever is a predictably optimistic writer restricted to tales of modern suburbia. He opens with an analysis of works published before 1945, and examines the evolution of Cheever's themes, styles and narrative devices through to 1981, and provides a compilation of critical essays on Cheever's work by Alfred Kazin, George Hunt and others.
