John Cheever - Drinking

John Cheever – Drinking

 

What we have  here is a collection of short stories about drinking by an alcoholic, so perhaps it’s no surprise that I enjoyed them. John Cheever’s writing style doesn’t necessarily feel unique, but it does wash over you and it greets you like an old friend.

My only real quibble here is that a few of the stories seemed to meander on for too long without having any real end goal in sight. But then, in many ways that reflects what it’s like to be a drunk, I guess. And the man could write, so it’s hard to grumble too much. And overall, I definitely liked it.
