The Journals, Paperback


John Cheever's journals reveal the inner life of this remarkable writer and the contradictions that drove him.

He loved his wife and their children, but was acutely lonely; he loved women, but he also loved men; he hated himself for his drinking, but for much of his life was dependent upon it; he was a great writer, but one whose acute levels of perception often crippled him as a person.

His journals are candid, beautiful and often startling.
