In an idyllic American village, elderly romantic Lemuel Sears still has it in him to fall wildly in love with strangers of both sexes. But Sears¿s paradise is under threat; the pond he loves is being fouled by unscrupulous polluters involved in organised crime. Can Sears thwart the monstrous aspects of late-twentieth-century civilisation and save his beloved village?
Cheever¿s wry fable of modern American is interlaced with musings on everything from the etiquette of supermarket queues to the evolution of the ice-skate.




This delightful fable shows him at the height of his powers Observer John Cheever is an enchanted realist, and his voice, in his luminous short stories and in incomparable novels like Bullet Park and Falconer, is as rich and distinctive as any of the leading voices of postwar American literature Philip Roth This curious novella is Cheever's wry pastoral fable about the state of modern America Sunday Times Sheer pleasure...his prose is charged like Scott Fitzgerald's Listener John Cheever understood fallibility and that made for the greatness in his writing The Times Cheever is a pleasure to read San Francisco Chronicle
