Falconer by John Cheever
Here’s a synopsis: “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 childhood. Only John Cheever could deliver these grand themes with the irony, unforced eloquence, and exhilarating humor that make Falconer such a triumphant work of the moral imagination.”
Cheever is considered a quality author – but not sure the “junky” themes float my boat. I’ll hold off until next month’s more upbeat book!
