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's triumph.... A great American novel." --Newsweek "One of the most important novels of our time.... Read it and be ennobled." --The New York Times

"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

"One of our truly fine writers.... The novel proceeds directly on its course, taking the reader along with it.... Moving and excellent." --The Washington Post
