I picked up this copy of The Stories of John Cheever while on a trip to the local dump a weekend or two ago. People drop off books in the recycling center building all of the time, but this was the first time that I spotted a real gem on the racks. The books are at the very end of the building, and I was about to drive off when I spied this tome out of the corner of my eye. Much to the chagrin of the people behind me, all of whom were impatient to leave, I threw the car into park, rushed over to the shelves, and snatched up the book. I haven’t read much Cheever, but I’ve been told that I should read him, and I took the appearance of his collected works as a sign.
