Why I love John Cheever

We got permission from a swimming instructor and swam across the lake.  We used a clumsy side stroke that still seems more serviceable to me than the overhand that is obligatory these days in those swimming pools where I spend most of my time.  The side stroke is lower class.  I've seen it once in a swimming pool, and when I asked who the swimmer was I was told he was the butler.
