"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.

"Yates was the most perceptive American writer of the twentieth century" The Times "A major literary event...a remarkable achievement" Independent "His short stories...are absolutely wonderful" -- Joseph O'Connor
