Praise for Collected Stories

“Cheever's accomplishment in his exacting art is proportionally large, as solid as it is brilliant, and likely to endure”

New York Review of Books

“John Cheever is an enchanted realist, and his voice, in his luminous short stories and in incomparable novels like Bullet Park and Falconer, is as rich and distinctive as any of the leading voices of postwar American literature”

Philip Roth
