The Journals

560 pages

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.

One of the most compelling and intimate books you'll ever read Independent Beautifully written, lyrically spiritual, sexually candid memoirs Mail on Sunday Cheever's journals include the struggle for recognition, the problem-drinking and covert homosexuality of a public figure and, finally, cancer. His intelligence and honesty powerfully communicate the sense of life as an urgent predicament Sunday Times These diaries are so painfully personal...that they were not published until after his death. But they also concentrate the true essence of what made his short stories great Sunday Express John Cheever understood fallibility and that made for the greatness in his writing The Times In superb prose, Cheever records his alcoholism, homosexuality, life of frustration and anxiety, success and chaos. Agonising and unforgettable Observer Moving and very honest Guardian
