Reviews
"Distinctive...and telling."
-- The New York Times Book Review
"Susan Cheever...decants the ups and downs of a remarkable man [and] does so in her distinctive style: succinct chapters, pithy profiles and telling detail...even more important are the insights and empathy so credibly her own as a reformed drinker who attended meetings of AA with her father, novelist John Cheever."
-- The New York Times Book Review
"As the biography of one of the most humane and beneficial Americans who ever lived, it is a national treasure."
-- Kurt Vonnegut
"[A] wise, well-reported life story of the man who changed the way the world deals with addiction."
-- Chicago Sun-Times
