Publisher's Summary

In this dark suburban drama, Cheever concerns himself with the two neighbors: Eliot Nailles, who loves his wife and son to distraction, and Paul Hammer, who, according to Nailles, is a bastard named after a common household tool. The pair soon become fatefully linked by the mysterious binding power of their names.

As an added bonus, when you purchase our Audible Modern Vanguard production of John Cheever's book, you'll also receive an exclusive Jim Atlas interview. This interview – where James Atlas interviews Blake Bailey about the life and work of John Cheever – begins as soon as the audiobook ends.

Critic Reviews

"The tone of a summing-up and the tension of a vision." (The New York Times)
"John Cheever is an enchanted realist, and his voice, in his luminous short stories and in incomparable novels like Bullet Park and Falconer, is as rich and distinctive as any of the leading voices of postwar American literature." (Philip Roth)

The Great John Cheever

he continues to enthrall me. I bit my lip till it bled listening to Bullet Park. you get to know these characters from a sideways direction, not the usual. But Cheever is not the usual writer. Can't say more without spoiling -- if you havent read it or listened to it, do. oh -- I very much liked the reader. he is exactly right for the book.
