Falconer by John Cheever [1978 PAPERBACK]
FIRST PAPERBACK EDITION  BALLANTINE BOOKS
8th printing from 1982. Excellent reading copy, unread w/ some wear and a spot of damage to corner of corner.
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.
