Summary:

Here, for the first time, is the full and unforgettable life of John Cheever (1912-1982), written with unprecedented access to essential sources. Cheever was a soul in conflict, a high-school dropout who published his first story at eighteen, a dire alcoholic who recovered to write the great novel Falconer, a secret bisexual who struggled with his longings and his fierce homophobia, whose groundbreaking work landed him on the covers of Time and Newsweek, a man who believed in the power of family love and sexual pleasure, a man whose desperate loneliness was never wholly offset by his faith in the joy of creation.

"The most exquisite, compelling, and heartbreaking life I've yet encountered. Blake Bailey doesn't merely write like an angel, he is an angel-he seamlessly resuscitates the past to make it live and breathe in the present, and he writes with all the power and authority of our finest novelists."-T. C. Boyle, author of The Women
