The Death of Justina

Downloadable audio file Publication Date: 22/09/2009

 

Here is one of twelve magnificent stories, originally part of The John Cheever Audio Collection, in which John Cheever celebrates -- with unequaled grace and tenderness -- the deepest feelings we have.

As Cheever writes in his preface, "These stories seem at times to be stories of a long-lost world when the city of New York was still filled with a river light, when you heard the Benny Goodman quartets from a radio in the corner stationery store, and when almost everybody wore a hat."
