Synopsis:

Children of divorced parents, sisters Sarah and Emily Grimes are observed over four decades, and grow into two very different women. Sarah is stable and stalwart, settling into an unhappy marriage. Emily is precocious and independent, struggling with one unsatisfactory love affair after another. Richard Yates's acclaimed novel is about how both women struggle to overcome their tarnished family's past, and how both finally reach for some semblance of renewal.


Review:

"[Yates] has two great technical gifts. First, for vivid drama: realistic narrative and dialogue that is both crisp and rich. And second, for direct, uncluttered eloquence: a prose of great clarity and perceptiveness. When these work together--usually at a moment of collapse--the effect is shattering....The style of EASTER PARADE is a little more detached and the book is funnier than Yates's earlier work, occsionally opening up a satirical distance between the authorial voice and the characters....On the whole, though, EASTER PARADE is a theatre of unrelieved humiliation, disappointment, and pain....Though executed with considerable inventiveness and insight, a numb blankness dominates this book, as it does Yates's others."

Theo Tait, London Review of Books, 02/06/2003

Review:

"...at once cruel and sweet, heartbreaking and brutal."

Stewart O'Nan, Boston Review, 10/01/1999
