The Stories of John Cheever - John Cheever

I've been homesick for countries I've never been, and longed to be where I couldn't be.


John Cheever


American novelist John Cheever (born May 27, 1912) has been aptly described as "the Chekhov of the suburbs." His writing may have saved his life. After enlisting, he published a book of short stories. An officer in the Signal Corps read and liked it, and had Cheever transferred to do communications work. Later, half of Cheever's original infantry regiment died at Normandy.
