Richard Yates was acclaimed as one of the most powerful, compassionate and accomplished writers of America's post-war generation.
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, Yates ruthlessly examines the hopes and disappointments of ordinary people with empathy and humour.
