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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"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 *
