Publisher Description

In this fabulous short story, the crown jewel of John Cheever’s Pulitzer Prize-winning collection The Stories of John Cheever, a man agonizes about class privilege and racism, confessing to the knowledge of a terrible crime and exposing a quiet American family’s darkest secrets.

Wandering about the sleepy Connecticut town of his childhood, where residents lead lives of grueling boredom, a journalist reminisces about the Cabot children: Molly, a sweet girl and his first love; Geneva who pilfered her mother’s diamonds from the clothesline and ran off to the Middle East; Wallace, Mr. Cabot’s bastard son who lives in the tenements across the river; and the dwarf, Mrs. Cabot’s child from an earlier marriage.
