Lover of the Fancy

Early C20th American culture and dissent

Bullet Park
John Cheever


Eliot Nailles loves his wife and son to distraction; Paul Hammer is a bastard named after a common household tool. Neighbours in Bullet Park, the two become fatefully linked by the mysterious binding power of their names in Cheever’s sharp and funny hymn to the dubious normality of the American suburbs.
