"A luminous epiphany of life . . . engaging and complex . . . vivid and alive."--Washington Post Book World. An old man falls madly in love and does valiant battle against polluters in this ineffably joyful novel--Cheever's last.
Posted June 21, 2000
Cheever penned this environmental treatise before being a tree hugger was cool. Wonderfully written with a sometimes brutal honesty, Cheever remains one of the best ever in the short fiction format. The constraints of short fiction are sometimes evident in this book -- rapid detail and stripped down action can leave the reader wanting more. He is sadly neglected now by most readers. Seek out this master.
