Cheever Reading/Listening Lists

March 27, 1964

Here are the stories by John Cheever we will be reading  for the March meeting of Classics Revisited:

"The Enormous Radio"
"The Swimmer"
"The Country Husband"
"The Sorrows of Gin"
"The Housebreaker of Shady Hill"
"The Brigadier and the Golf Widow"
"The Reunion"

For recordings of Cheever short stories, check this out:
Each month the New Yorker invites one of its regular fiction contributors to choose a short story from the magazine's archives, read it aloud, and then discuss it with fiction editor Deborah Triesman. Two Cheever short stories have been featured so far, and with the click of a button you can listen to both of them at the New Yorker website.

On this page you'll find Robert Ford reading "The Reunion,"  and on this one, Anne Enright reads "The Swimmer." The discussions following the reading are always most insightful and interesting.
