About this Item

First Edition (so stated) of the author's first book, recently brought to the screen by Sam Mendes, with Kate Winslet and Leonardo Decaprio. 8vo: [8],337,[1]pp. Publisher's red quarter-cloth lettered in gilt, black paper-covered boards; tan pictorial dust jacket titled in red, with quote in black from Alfred Kazin, priced $4.75. A Fine, tight, square copy, likely unread, in a Fine jacket, virtually pristine, crisp and clean with no foxing, dust-soiling or stains and no fading to the fugitive red on the spine panel. Yates's first novel, a blistering, incisive portrait of marriage and suburban life in 1950's America, attracted an impressive list of admirers (among them Tennessee Williams, Joan Didion, Richard Ford and Kurt Vonnegut Jr., who called the book The Great Gatsby of its generation) and was nominated for the 1962 National Book Award, but by the time Yates died more than 30 years later, fewer than 12,000 copies had sold. In recent years, two events catapulted Revolutionary Road onto the New York Times bestseller list: Sam Mendes's film and "A Tragic Honesty," Blake Bailey's biography of Yates. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory # BB1134
