The great Dick Cavett remembers an interview with two lions of American literature, John Cheever and John Updike.
Here's a startling line:
The price exacted by booze, drugs and the wear-and-tear of leading a double (triple?) life of bisexual adultery while maintaining a family and brilliant writing career was writ large on the raffish Cheever face.
Cavett's interviews are priceless, and I suggest you watch the rarely available video of the show included in his article.
