About the Author
Richard Yates was the author of the novels Revolutionary Road, A Special Providence, Disturbing the Peace, The Easter Parade, A Good School, Young Hearts Crying, and Cold Spring Harbor, as well as the short story collections Eleven Kinds of Loneliness and Liars in Love. He died in 1992.
"The excellence of Revolutionary Road lies in the integrity with which its author depicts the Wheeler's disintegrating marriage. Eschewing the pitfalls of obvious caricature or patent moralizing, Mr. Yates chooses the more difficult path of allowing his characters to reveal themselves--which they do with an intensity that excites the reader's compassion as well as his interest." - New York Times
