Cheever is perhaps best known for his short stories, but he also wrote five novels, which the Library of America has collected in this handsome, annotated, hardback volume. As with his contemporary Updike, Cheever primarily deals with angst, alienation and bad behavior among well-to-do white people in the suburbs. The two Wapshot novels are his most famous, but I didn't really like either of them. "Bullet Park" was my favorite of the group, taking the suburban theme and making it a bit darker and stranger. "Falconer" is his oddest and most atypical novel, set in a prison and his final novel "Oh What a Paradise It Seems" is a slim volume about romance between an unlikely couple as well as the environment.
