The Enormous Radio and other stories
14 short stories from John Cheever
First US edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14.5cm, 237pp.
A collection of 14 short stories which had previously appeared in the New Yorker. From the wrapper, "No one has done a more skilful job of capturing certain aspects of contemporary life. Most of his characters are young, married, and urban; as a writer Cheever is engrossed by their youth, the strains and burdens they feel in adult relationships, and the uneasy quality of their adjustment to the society in which they live".
A very good copy. The dustwrapper is a little creased to the edges and is now within a protective sleeve (hence the sheen in the photo). The book is in solid condition, with clean pages and secure binding but has a small water stain to the top margin for the last 30 pages but not affecting the text.Sold
