In these journals, the experiences of one of the most renowned twentieth-century American writers come to life with fascinating, wholly revealing detail. • "A treasure-trove of riches." —The New York Times Book Review
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author's journals provide peerless insights into the creation of his novels and stories. But they are equally the record of a complex, often dark, always closely observed inner world. No American writer of comparable stature has left such an unreservedly revealing and moving account of himself: his family life, his literary life, and his emotional life.
The final word from one of modern America's great writers, The Journals of John Cheever provides a powerful and beautiful capstone to a towering oeuvre.
