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.

An uncomfortable, but spot-on, depiction of 1950's suburbia. Domestic fiction at its best!

The devastating effects of work, adultery, rebellion, and self-deception slowly destroy the once successful marriage of Frank and April Wheeler, a suburban American couple. -Novelist

1950's
___________________________________________
A dark, moving look at suburban life in 1950's America. Yates explores themes of isolation and domestic conflict.

Every sentence is mind-blowing. What a splendidly depressing book!
