Notable Reads: John Cheever

If you’re looking for a new read over this long weekend, don’t hesitate to start from Cheever’s beginning, The Wapshot Chronicle.

To the best of my knowledge, a screen adaptation, sadly, has yet to be written. I imagine the result to look like a David Lynch collaboration with Wes Anderson: dark and surprising facets of suburban life expressed through the personal episodes of a highly developed cast of family characters.
