'I fell hopelessly in love with John Cheever last year... He was, and his fiction is, extraordinary. I love the way you never know what on Earth is going to happen next' Philip Hensher

Eliot Nailles loves his wife and son to distraction; Paul Hammer is a bastard named after a common household tool. Neighbours in Bullet Park, the two become fatefully linked by the mysterious binding power of their names in Cheever's sharp and funny hymn to the dubious normality of the American suburbs.
