Abstract:

The journals span approximately 48 years and reflect Cheever's personal and professional life. While they note events of the day occasionally, they are primarily a record of his inner life and a sketchbook for development of his stories and novels.

Topics include work on short stories, novels, and screenplays; Cheever's wife, Mary; their children, Benjamin, Susan, and Federico; Cheever's brother, Frederick; reading other writers' work, including Saul Bellow and John Updike; life in New York (N.Y.), Scarborough (N.Y.), and Ossining (N.Y.); worldwide travels; extended stays at Yaddo, an artist's colony in Saratoga Springs (N.Y.); sexual orientation; and treatments for alcoholism and cancer.

Materials include the three-ring binders in which the journals were kept and a small amount of loose material found inserted between the journal leaves. Inserted material includes a small amount of correspondence, journal fragments, fragments of stories and novels, and miscellaneous notes.
