Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » I never tire these stories: with their mixture of the haunting, the evocative, the touching and the funny, they serially stimulate all my emotions. Cheever is the Chekhov of American suburbia, and a terrific companion on a long flight with a couple of dry martinis. review by Jan Morris, whose books include 'Fisher's Face' (Kirkus UK)
