Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Yates' first novel that became an instant classic upon its release in 1961. It remains the definitive portrayal of the lost promises and break-up of the American dream.


Review:

"Originally published in 1961, this gratifyingly beautiful novel has been reissued again--and for good reason....[A]n overlooked masterpiece of American tragedy."

Oscar C. Villalon, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, 11/19/2000

Review:

"This is the material of comedy, and there are scenes in the novel that border on slapstick, but rather than innocent misunderstandings that prove harmless, the characters' misadventures are unremittingly bleak and confirm the emptiness of their lives....Richard Yates's satire is not confined to the tensions of middle-class American life, but lays bare the adjustment to its shifting boundaries and in the improbable balance of restlessness and complacency he can find neither cause to celebrate nor reason to forgive."

Stan Trachtenburg, Times Literary Supplement, 01/26/2001
