Richard Yates - Revolutionary Road (2nd Hand Paperback)
Hailed as a masterpiece from the moment of its first publication, Revolutionary Road is the story of Frank and April Wheeler, a bright, beautiful, and talented couple whose empty suburban life is held together by the dream that greatness is only just round the corner.
Dialogues between husband and wife are brilliantly used to bring concealed resentments to the surface. In their ordinary conversations, Frank and April Wheeler learn every way to wound or disgust each other. We also get imaginary dialogues: exchanges that only take place in Frank's head.
With heart-breaking compassion and clarity, Richard Yates shows how Frank and April mortgage their hopes and ideals, betraying in the end not only each other, but their own best selves.
