"Torch Song." John Cheever.

Review: Joan’s lovers are the diseased, the dying, the unfortunate. She has nothing to do with Jack---until he also is diseased and dying. Carrion watch. The style of writing is as sterile as Joan’s love.

Rating: *** Out of *****

Short Story Masterpieces. Ed. RP Warren and A Erskine. New York: Dell Books. 1954.
