The Wapshot Chronicle

De
336 pages


Meet the Wapshots of St Botolphs. There is Captain Leander Wapshot, venerable sea-dog and would-be suicide; his licentious older son, Moses; and Moses's adoring and errant younger brother, Coverly. Tragic and funny, ribald and splendidly picaresque, and partly based on Cheever's adolescence in New England, The Wapshot Chronicle is a family narrative in the finest traditions of Trollope, Dickens, and Henry James




Cheever's debut novel is skittish, mercurial and ringing with life Guardian The best introduction to Cheever's work...richly inventive and vividly told New York Times Magazine A tapestry woven from the threads of emotion, tragedy, comedy...and the irony so wonderfully evident in the author's short stories...a literary mosaic...Cheever is a pleasure to read San Francisco Chronicle A brilliantly written novel, vastly and sometimes sadly, amusing Time
