John Cheever Falconer. The main entrance to Falconer-the only entrance for convicts, their visitors and the staff-was crowned by an escutcheon representing Liberty, Justice and, between the two, the sovereign power of government. Liberty wore a mobcap and carried a pike. Government was the federal Eagle holding an olive branch and armed with hunting arrows.

Once upon a time the Wapshots of St. Botolphs were distinguished for their unshakeable good opinion of themselves. But the family members have drifted far from their New England village - and into the demented caprices of the mighty, the bad graces of the IRS and the humiliating abyss of adulterous passion. Stunning and brutally powerful, Falconer tells the story of a man named Farragut, his crime and punishment, and his struggle to remain a man in a universe bent on beating him back into childhood.

Rome and Paris would be empty of everyone but tourists, and even the Pope would be taking it easy in Gandolfo ilding and cellblock A. He got t. . He got the mower and the gas tank out of the garage and joked with the Mad Dog Killer. He started the motor with a rope pull, which brought on memories of outboard motors on mountain lakes in the long ago. That was the summer when he had learned to water-ski, not at the stern of an outboard, but at the stern of a racer called a Gar-Wood.

In a nightmarish prison a convict named Farragut--a professor, drug addict, and a fratricide--struggles to remain a man. "One of the most important novels of our time . . . Read it and be ennobled".--Los Angeles Times.
