Summary
NATIONAL BESTSELLER
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize
Winner of the National Book Award

Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, The Stories of John Cheever is a seminal collection from one of the true masters of the short story. Spanning the duration of Cheever's long and distinguished career, these sixty-one stories chronicle and encapsulate the lives of what has been called "the greatest generation." From the early wonder and disillusionment of city life in "The Enormous Radio" to the surprising discoveries and common mysteries of suburbia in "The Housebreaker of Shady Hill" and "The Swimmer," these are tales that have helped define the form. Featuring a preface by the author, The Stories of John Cheever brings together some of the finest short stories ever written.
