Falconer is a prison and Farragut is the convicted man. This is the story of what happens to him.

"FALCONER is John Cheever's most wonderful novel--an unforgettably moving book, both fantastic and real--about a substantial upper middle-class man and the storms of love, nostalgia and of undreamed-of liberation." (Publisher's Source)

What People are Saying About This

Saul Bellow

Falconer is splendid. It is rough, it is elegant, it is pure. It is also indispensable, if you earnestly desire to know what is happening to the human soul in the U.S.A.
