Product Details

Praise

“A powerful treatment of a characteristically American theme, which might be labeled ‘trapped.’ … A highly impressive performance. It is written with perception, force and awareness of complexity and ambiguity, and it tells a moving and absorbing story.” —The Atlantic Monthly

The Great Gatsby of my time … one of the best books by a member of my generation.” —Kurt Vonnegut, acclaimed author of Slaughterhouse-Five

“Beautifully crafted … a remarkable and deeply troubling book.” —Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

“Every phrase reflects to the highest degree integrity and stylistic mastery. To read Revolutionary Road is to have forced upon us a fresh sense of our critical modern shortcomings: failures of work, education, community, family, marriage . . . and plain nerve.”—The New Republic

“Richard Yates is a writer of commanding gifts. His prose is urbane yet sensitive, with passion and irony held deftly in balance. And he provides unexpected pleasures in a flood of freshly minted phrases and in the thrust of sudden insight, precise notation of feeling, and mordant unsentimental perceptions.” —Saturday Review

“A deft, ironic, beautiful novel that deserves to be a classic.” —William Stryron, National Book Award-winning author of Sophie’s Choice
