The Wapshot Scandal

De
336 pages


Once upon a time the Wapshots of St. Botolphs were distinguished for their unshakeable good opinion of themselves. But the family members have drifted far from their New England village ¿ and into the demented caprices of the mighty, the bad graces of the IRS and the humiliating abyss of adulterous passion. A novel of large and tender vision, The Wapshot Scandal is filled with pungent characters and outrageous twists of fate, and, above all, with Cheever's luminous compassion for all his hapless fellow prisoners of human nature




I read The Wapshot Scandal with pure delight - in the characters, in the firm and deceptively simple style, and most of all in the continual power of invention A master American storyteller Time Cheever's intelligence and honesty powerfully communicate the sensations of being alive Sunday Times One of the finest storytellers writing in English today The Times Cheever is a pleasure to read San Francisco Chronicle
