Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A deft, ironic, beautiful novel that deserves to be a classic." William Styron

From the moment of its publication in 1961, Revolutionary Road was hailed as a masterpiece of realistic fiction and as the most evocative portrayal of the opulent desolation of the American suburbs. It's the story of Frank and April Wheeler, a bright, beautiful, and talented couple who have lived on the assumption that greatness is only just around the corner. With heartbreaking compassion and remorseless clarity, Richard Yates shows how Frank and April mortgage their spiritual birthright, betraying not only each other, but their best selves.

In his introduction to this edition, novelist Richard Ford pays homage to the lasting influence and enduring power of Revolutionary Road.

Synopsis:

Yates' first novel that became an instant classic upon its release in 1961. It remains the definitive portrayal of the lost promises and break-up of the American dream.
