Rate this:

In this simultaneously hilarious and poignant companion volume to The Wapshot Chronicle, the members of the Wapshot family of St. Botolphs drift far from their New England village into the demented caprices of the mighty, the bad graces of the IRS, and the humiliating abyss of adulterous passion.

A novel of large and tender vision, The Wapshot Scandal is filled with pungent characters and outrageous twists of fate, and, above all, with Cheever's luminous compassion for all his hapless fellow prisoners of human nature.

The real scandal is why Cheever gets so much acclaim. This is the sequel to "The Wapshot Chronicle" and younger readers/writers may wonder what all the fuss was about. Introduction by Dave "Heartbreaking Genius" Eggers.
