Cheever answers two lengthy and rather mawkish letters (each one page, 40, single-spaced) from Norman Wilner, a teacher of comedy writing: "... I am anxious about my work and its reception," Cheever writes on Sept. 26, 1977, "and if you can put down 'Falconer' [recently published] on page twenty-three long enough to write, stamp and mail a latter the book must be a failure. In this house I won't let anyone put down a book of mine – not even to piss." (BA).
