Bullet Park is a 1969 novel by American Novelist John Cheever about an earnest yet pensive father Eliot Nailles and his troubled son Tony, and their predestined fate with a psychotic man Hammer, who moves to Bullet Park to sacrifice one of them. The book deals with the failure of the American dream, spoken in a fable-like tone, in similar vein with Richard Yates' Revolutionary Road and The Great Gatsby.


In 2008, the novel was adapted into a French-language film, Parc.

In 2009, Audible.com produced an audio version of Bullet Park, narrated by Marc Vietor, as part of its Modern Vanguard line of audiobooks.
