John Cheever was born in Quincy, Massachusetts, in 1912. He is the author of seven collections of stories and five novels. His first novel, The Wapshot Chronicle, won the 1958 National Book Award. In 1965 he received the Howells Medal for Fiction from the National Academy of Arts and Letters, and in 1978 The Stories of John Cheever won the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Pulitzer Prize. Shortly before his death, in 1982, he was awarded the National Medal for Literature from the Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters.

In The Season of Divorce, a husband is at first amused when his wife, Ethel, is openly and clumsily pursued by another man. But as the other man persists, Ethel starts to reconsider how happy she really is. The husband's amusement turns to annoyance, then to anger, and despair.
