Read full description of the books:
A fascinating short story about a wife and husband who own a radio that lets them overhear other people's lives. The voyeuristic nature of "The Enormous Radio" speaks to our use of social media today: I, for one, have spent large amounts of time analyzing people based on their social media presence, even though I know most individuals portray an idealized image of themselves online. John Cheever's story shows our thirst to know other people's intimacies and how that desire has both good and bad consequences. I found most intriguing the divide between hearing people's woes and taking action to address them, as well as the slight gender themes in Cheever's piece. Overall, a great short story I would recommend to those interested in magical realism and to those who find themselves on Facebook maybe a little too often.

Read information about the authorJohn Cheever was an American novelist and short story writer, sometimes called "the Chekhov of the suburbs" or "the Ovid of Ossining." His fiction is mostly set in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the suburbs of Westchester, New York, and old New England villages based on various South Shore towns around Quincy, Massachusetts, where he was born.
His main themes include the duality of human nature: sometimes dramatized as the disparity between a character's decorous social persona and inner corruption, and sometimes as a conflict between two characters (often brothers) who embody the salient aspects of both--light and dark, flesh and spirit. Many of his works also express a nostalgia for a vanishing way of life, characterized by abiding cultural traditions and a profound sense of community, as opposed to the alienating nomadism of modern suburbia.
