The Wapshot Chronicle
The Wapshot family, 3 generations
Classic Cheever from the New Yorker––smart, funny, and touching.
St. Botolphs was an old place, an old river town.
I will never come back, and if I do there will be nothing left, there will be nothing left but the headstones to record what has happened; there will really be nothing at all.
There was a sequel written to this modern classic, The Wapshot Scandal. As most sequels, it does not measure up to the greatness of the first.
