About the Author

A native New Yorker, Richard Yates was born in 1926; his first novel, Revolutionary Road, was a finalist for the National Book Award (in the same year as The Moviegoer and Catch-22). Much admired by peers, he was known during his lifetime as the foremost fiction writer of the post-war "age of anxiety." He published his last novel in 1986, and died in 1992.

Kayla Perry, November 8, 2011 (view all comments by Kayla Perry)
Yates is a favorite of mine, he has such an incredible way with words, each sentence is the deliberate brushstroke of a painter. I enjoyed Disturbing the Peace for treading on literary ground I don't see a lot of, namely its dealing with mental health and its sometimes sad, inelegant conclusion.
