The second, Complete Novels, presents all five of Cheever’s novels: The Wapshot Chronicle (winner of the National Book Award); The Wapshot Scandal (winner of the William Dean Howells Medal); Bullet Park; Falconer; and Oh What a Paradise It Seems.LIBRARY OF AMERICA is an independent nonprofit cultural organization founded in 1979 to preserve our nation’s literary heritage by publishing, and keeping permanently in print, America’s best and most significant writing.
