Revolutionary Road, The Easter Parade, Eleven Kinds of Loneliness



One of the greatest American novelists of the twentieth century’ Sunday Telegraph

Richard Yates was acclaimed as one of the most powerful, compassionate and accomplished writers of America’s post-war generation. Whether addressing the smothered desire of suburban housewives, the white-collar despair of Manhattan office workers or the heartbreak of a single mother with artistic pretensions, Yates ruthlessly examines the hopes and disappointments of ordinary people with empathy and humour.
