Publisher's Summary

Stunning and brutally powerful, Falconer tells the story of a man named Farragut, his crime and punishment, and his struggle to remain a man in a universe bent on beating him back into his childhood. Only Cheever could deliver these grand themes with the irony, unforced eloquence, and exhilarating humor that make this book such a triumphant work of moral imagination.
As an added bonus, when you purchase our Audible Modern Vanguard production of John Cheever's book, you'll also receive an exclusive Jim Atlas interview. This interview - where James Atlas interviews Blake Bailey about the life and work of John Cheever - begins as soon as the audiobook ends.

What the Critics Say

"Falconer is splendid. It is rough, it is elegant, it is pure. It is also indispensable, if you earnestly desire to know what is happening to the human soul in the U.S.A." (Saul Bellow)
