Pool by Pool
Neddy Merrill made a decision in the middle of a suburban idyll. He swims home, pool after pool owned by neighbors and friends. He crawls through it until he ends up in his own pool. The Swimmer, in all its absurdity, is one of American author John Cheever's best-known stories. The Swimmer, is also the name of the collection of short stories published in 1978 under "The Stories of John Cheever".
