Read, Write, Edit dThe river listening to the parrot and feeling the balm of those evening winds that in New England smell so of maidenly things of orris root and toilet soap and rented rooms wet by an open window in a thunder shower of chamber pots and sorrel soap and roses and gingham and lawn of choir robes and copies of the New Testament bound in limp morocco and pastures that are for sale blooming now with rue and fern as we see the flowers staked by Leander with broken hockey sticks and mop and broom handles as we see the scarecrow in the cornfield wears the red coat of theefunct St Botolphs Horse Guards and that the blue water of the river below them seems mingled with our history it would be wrong to say as an architectural photographer once Think about Editing did after photographing the sideoor It s just like a scene from JP Maruand The adventures of Leander s sons as they set sail from St Botolphs to make their own stabs at life as well as the continuing events of Leander Mrs Wapshot and Honora back in St Botolphs form the larger part of the Wapshot family s chronicle Though it is not heart poundingly exciting not saturated with either sex or violence there are some surprisingly American Legal History dark or perhaps betterescribed as foreboding and unexpected happenings These not only lend some spice to the consistently interesting read but are wiki tells us another characteristic of Cheever s outlook this The Evolution of Technology darker streak apparently connected with Cheever s hidden homosexuality and associated feelings of guilt at this concealed inner life the agony of this guilt assuaged byrink There is an interview with his aughter published in the Guardian in which she expresses very positive feelings towards her father and a sadness that he felt so much guilt about something that has ceased to produce that shameguilt burden so many were condemned to until enlightened recent yearsSome readers will not be particularly thrilled with this rather tame story or with the somewhat soft landing of the ending But for me the book was a wonderful read If you have a possible interest it might be a good idea to check out some of his short stories to see if they might provide an impetus to read this novel or his final novel Falconer thought by some to be his best Stories worth seeking out include The Enormous Radio Goodbye My Brother The Five Forty Eight The Country Husband and The SwimmerFor myself I ll be looking for by Cheever Previous review Manchild in the Promised Land autobiography fictionRandom review History of Art Janson Next review 2016 on Goodreads The author was a famous short story writer and this was his first attempt at a novel It won the National Book Award for 1958It s kind of a coming of age story of two young men although most of the plot follows not their youth but the start of their careers Their father was a river boat captain so there s a bit of sea lore We re in a small New England sea town at the turn of the century a time when autos are replacing horses There s a focus on change nothing was any what it aimed to be or what it would be in the end and the house that had meant to express family pride was now a funeral parlor the house that had meant to express worldly pride was a rooming house Ursuline nuns lived in the castle that was meant to express the pride of avarice There are a lot of accidental eaths by Ethan Marcus Stands Up drowning or in car crashes Mostly the story is of two brothers interspersed with excerpts from aiary kept by their father that chronicles his life and gives us family secrets An unmarried aunt controls the family fortune When she sees her two nephews begin fooling around with the local girls she orders them out into the world One goes to New York and one to Washington DC They both eventually marry and end up in troubled marriages The story is uasi autobiographical Cheever had a brother to whom he said he "Was Ungainly Attached He Grew " ungainly attached He grew in a New England seaport uincy Mass with ship captain ancestors In the story his mother becomes the support for the family by opening a gift shop in the Matti In the Wallet derelict ship in real life Cheever s motherid the same in a failed shoe factory His aunt controlled the family fortune The main way the story seems autobiographical is in Cheever s portrayal of the two marriages The men are perfectly fine the two women are a bundle of anxieties and almost nuts This parallels Cheever s life where he insisted that his wife go with him for psychological counseling avant garde at that time When the psychologist told him John YOU RE the problem Cheever never went back Cheever was manic epressive an alcoholic and had a series of affairs Late in life he had bisexual affairs His aughter Susan Cheever chronicled this family life in her own memoir in life he had bisexual affairs His aughter Susan Cheever chronicled this family life in her own memoir in Home Before Dark For 1954 it contains what would have been considered graphic sex for that time and in fact Cheever holds the honor of the first allowance of the f word in selections chosen by Book of the Month Club #As A Side Note It #a side note it interesting that three Johns pushed the boundaries of explicit sex in popular American works In addition to Cheever 1912 1982 there was John O Hara 1905 1970 and then John Updike 1932 2009 Late in the book is a chapter about one of the brothers having a homosexual experience It s the 1950 s so here s how Cheever begins that chapter And now we come to the unsavory or homosexual part of our tale those words are in italics in the book and any isinterested reader is encouraged to skip Some examples of good writing I mean he Two Brothers, One Tail doesn t have anything nice to remember and so he borrows other people s memories he was much shorter than his wife a jolly pink faced man with a uietness that might have beeneveloped to complement the noise she made the power beautiful women have of evoking landscapes a sense of rueful Woman Much Missed distance as if their eyes had come to rest on a horizon that had never been seen by any man A pretty good read but itrags a bit and we have the unrealistic portrayal of the marriages I ll give it a 3 Cheever wrote a seuel The Wapshot Scandal but I think I ll pass and perhaps read

The Wapshot ChronicleFirst off this is not my sort of topic for a book Waspy New England families of a bygone era Blech blahh Second of all it How to Train a Cowboy doesn t matter when the prose is so lovely and vivid Cheever manages to make otherwise boring crap sound beautiful And out of the randomoings of a family in a New England port town emerge many of the problems and themes universal to families blah blah blah But then out of nowhere you see through the character s mundane workaday into what makes them tick Cheever never spells it out really he oesn t give us access to their innermost contemplations but by the end the puzzle pieces start to fit together and you see why everyone is alternately miserable and satisfied Perhaps he s a bit misogynistic it s kind of a bummer but I fear fairly typical of the 50 s of which this book is a product Even though my girlfriend thinks the ending is terribly epressing I find it to be heartbreakingly bittersweet and sometimes that s what I want from a book Something so emotionally confusing that your heart soars and sinks and I think that s what Cheever accomplishes in this wonderful surprise of a book Moses and Coverly Wapshot A Touch of Persuasion (Men Of Wolff Mountain dissolute Leander s two sons have to make their way in the America of the mid Twentieth Century armed with the airs and attitudes of Nineteenth Century New England St Botolphs is like a pumpkin pie says their elderly aunt Honora of their home town no upper crust But there is limited room in St Botolphs for the two boys so they set out on their seriocomic adventures THE WAPSHOT CHRONICLE is a comedy and often aarn funny one at that in spite of or perhaps in juxtaposition with John Cheever s well recognized tendency toward brief outbursts of anguish THE WAPSHOT CHRONICLE is fine reading perhaps bettered by John Cheever s following novel THE WAPSHOT SCANDAL inspired in part by Cheever s sojourn in Italy with wife son and new son born thereThe Wapshot Scandal Have you ever met someone who is particularly striking or beautiful but when you pick apart all their features they Watch for Me by Moonlight (The Midnight Twins, don t add up to yourefinition

beautiful 20th Century Great Expectations like novel of a family s The Mommy Makeover depth and breadth its secrets and its flaws The two brothers are saddled with the albatross and obligation to insure ensure that Old Honora s keeps paying the bills future for the boys and current for their parents Cheever fills his novel withominating mothers idiosyncratic and co The Convicts Bounty Bride (Convict Wives dependent guardians changeable wives and costly lovers The trinity of Wapshot men float throughout Cheever s novel in a wayward rudderless boat Their lives are constantly taking on water and they seemestined to be blown further from the shore by the A River of Royal Blood (Untitled, dominant humor of the nearest strong willed femaleThe characters in The Wapshot Chronicle were amazing Its language and narrative were incredible Cheever s satire and ribald humor constantly bit this reader in his lusty for good literature ass Do NOT be as stupid as me Don t pick a book by its cover Particularly when the coveroes not accurately portray what the book will give you I wanted to re test John Cheever and the cover rew my attention Big mistake The primary focus of this novel is sexuality The author was bisexual so I have full understanding that one s sexual identity was a topic of particular interest to him Halfway through the book not yet understanding that ambivalent feelings about one s sexual identity Is In The in fact s central focus I exploded saying For God s sake oesn t a person instinctively know when sex is good I am uite simply the wrong reader for this book It should be noted the book looks at men s rather than women s bisexuality I thought the book was about living near the sea or about appreciation of auatic surroundings or about a fisherman s life or something to The Palliser Novels do with the sea Look at the cover We are told in the book sescription that this is to be a family chronicle of the Wapshots living in St Botolphs a uintessential Massachusetts fishing village We are told there will be stories of Captain Leander Wapshot a venerable sea Men And Gods In Mongolia dog but this is only where the story begins The chapters flip between Captain Wapshot s journal entries about his youth written in staccato abbreviated incomplete sentences and the coming of age experiences of his two sons What is often a central ingredient of coming of age stories Well of course sex Here the author s own bisexual leaning influences the telling The youngest son Coverly is sixteen when the story begins The older Moses is in college We follow the father and these two sons until they are married and have their own children There is a uestion of inheritance view spoilerLeander s eccentric aunt Honora has willed her money to Moses and Coverly but only if they have children It is she who has the money in the family hide spoiler It s gonna happen sometime people no matter how you mayread it Yes I am referring to my long planned heavily unanticipated as yet unwritten irritatingly irrelevant monograph on John Cheever wherein I single handedly return him to his proper place in the first rank of American novelists Due in eual parts to Seinfeld and postmodernism Cheever has become little than a punch line a sad symbol of ated postwar suburban cocktail party angst well #think again bitches The Wapshot Chronicle is a

reputation as a short story writer rose rapidly and his first novel The Wapshot Chronicle won the National Book award in 1958 He later published three other novels The Wapshot Scandal 1965 Bullet Park 1969 and Falconer 1977 But #HE WAS PRIMARILY KNOWN FOR HIS #was primarily known for his stories some critics have ventured that Cheever is one of the most important short fiction writers of the 20th century and he has been referred to as the Chekhov of the *suburbs Born in New York Cheever s stories are set in Manhattan the Westchester and the shore *Born in New York Cheever s stories are set in Manhattan the Westchester suburbs and shore along the coast that stretches from New York City to Boston Connecting Cheever s stories to the suburban world Considering Kate (The Stanislaskis, does not mean that he romanticized the suburban lifestyle as iteveloped in the Sweetland decades in which he matured and wrote Wiki notes that many of his works also express a nostalgia for a vanishing way of life characterized by abiding cultural traditions and a profound sense of community in the smaller towns along this coast as opposed to the alienating nomadism of modern suburbia The Wapshot ChronicleBeing a chronicle we might surmise that the novel tells of important historical events but this would be ironic for the events told in the third person narrative have significance only for the characters living them and a few friends and neighbors in the mythical town of St Botolphs located just inland of the coast mentioned above Those characters being the father Leander Wapshot the mother Mrs Wapshot to us though Leander reveals in his innerialogues that her name is Sarah Leander s two teen aged sons Moses and Coverly and Leander s cousin though with a slight complication involving separate grandmothers Honora She Honora plays a role outsized for a cousin resulting from the facts that a she inherited uite a sum b she was brought up by Leander s father one of her uncles with that same complication c she has never married Art of Laurel and Hardy d sheesires to leave her wealth which is also a sometime loan source to Leander to his sons but e only on condition that they themselves produce male heirs A telling fork in the chronicle results from Honora unfortunately witnessing a happening of sexual nature involving one of the sonsBut that previously mentioned Cheever theme of nostalgia for a vanishing way of life was what I soon sensed myself as I began reading the novel Actual Hers To Cherish (Verdantia, dates are not mentioned often especially in the
