Compulsive reading. The effect is as if one is being allowed complete access to Cheever's consciousness (and parts of his unconscious too, in the unforgettable dream descriptions.) Usually sad and frequently hilarious. And, of course, beautiful. ( )

Cheever's JOURNALS are gorgeously composed, trial runs for the short stories and novels he so meticulously constructed. The words pour out of him, startling, candid observations of the world surrounding him rendered in peerless prose.

A book for careful, scrupulous readers, folks who enjoy reading poetry slowly, savoring each syllable or inflection. ( )
