Disturbing the Peace by Richard Yates

Book Description

""Hailed as America s finest realistic novelist by the "Boston Globe, "Richard Yates, author of "Revolutionary Road, " garnered rare critical acclaim for his bracing, unsentimental portraits of middle-class American life."" "Disturbing the Peace" is no exception. Haunting, troubling, and mesmerizing, it shines a brilliant, unwavering light into the darkest recesses of a man s psyche. To all appearances, John Wilder has all the trappings of success, circa 1960: a promising career in advertising, a loving family, a beautiful apartment, even a country home. John s evenings are spent with associates at quiet Manhattan lounges and his weekends with friends at glittering cocktail parties. But something deep within this seemingly perfect life has long since gone wrong. Something has disturbed John s fragile peace, and he can no longer find solace in fleeting affairs or alcohol. The anger, the drinking, and the recklessness are building to a crescendo and they re about to take down John s career and his family. What happens next will send John on a long, strange journey at once tragic and inevitable."
