All Stars Deliver
One wonders how it would be possible that an Audiobook of John Cheever's stories read by the likes of Ms. Streep and Mr. Plimpton could disappoint. Be calmed dear listener... no such disillusionment will be found here.

Magnificent stories magnificently read
May be my favorite audiobook ever. Some of the most stunningly strange and wonderful stories ever written read by Meryl Streep, Blythe Danner, George Plympton, Edward Hermann, Peter Gallagher and finally, stunningly by Cheever himself. I'm so glad to have this in my library
