Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
Written by the author who 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, ruthlessly examines the hopes and disappointments of ordinary people with empathy and humour.
"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, 11/19/2000Review:
"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
