Reviews

  • He lies, in American writing, somewhere between Scott Fitzgerald and John Updike

    Malcolm Bradbury
  • The master of the short story was also the master of the short letter

    Sunday Times
  • I enjoyed The Letters of John Cheever enormously... Cheever shone in his three-paragraph masterpieces about temperamental plumbing, pets, and the loneliness of the short story-writer

    Zoe Heller
  • Cheever's work - a succession of brilliant short stories for the New Yorker and four novels - depends on an edgy eye for detail and a compulsive narrative personality

    Independent
  • John's letters and Benjamin's commentary makes a special kind of dialogue that touches and haunts, both in what is said and what is kept silent

    Los Angeles Times
