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.
