John Cheever spent much of his career impersonating a perfect suburban gentleman, the better to become one of the foremost chroniclers of postwar America. Written with unprecedented access to essential sources--including Cheever's massive journal, only a fraction of which has ever been published--Bailey's Cheever is a stunning example of the biographer's art and a brilliant tribute to an essential author.
