"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
