Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

 

Three classic works—including the virtuosic Revolutionary Road, soon to be a major motion picture—that exemplify the remarkable gifts of this great American master.

 

Richard Yates’s first novel, Revolutionary Road is the unforgettable portrait of a marriage built on dreams that tragically never come to fruition. In The Easter Parade, he tells the story of two sisters whose parents’ divorce overshadows their entire lives. And in the stories in Eleven Kinds of Loneliness, we witness men and women striving for better lives amid discouragement and disillusion.

James R. Withington, January 1, 2011 (view all comments by James R. Withington)
Revolutionary Road was certainly the best book I read in 2010. It's a classic--not a new book for 2010--the kind of book that leaves an impression of greatness. So incredibly well-written, and something that will make me interested in Yates for years to come.

Whether or not the film adaptation floats your boat, this new edition of Yates's "Revolutionary Road," "The Easter Parade," and "Eleven Kinds of Loneliness" brings together some of his best work in one nice-looking edition. And some of the best work of Yates is some of the best, period.
