Description - The Collected Stories of Richard Yates by Richard Yates
Richard Yates was one of the most powerful, compassionate, and technically accomplished writers of America's post-war generation. His work inspired writers such as Richard Ford, Andre Dubus, Robert Stone, and Kurt Vonnegut, and his 1961 novel, Revolutionary Road, is an acknowledged classic of American literature. This volume contains the entirety of Yates's peerless short fiction, including the stories from his collections Eleven Kinds of Loneliness (hailed by The New York Times Book Review as "the New York equivalent of Dubliners") and Liars in Love. This superb collection also offers nine new stories, seven of which have never before been published. Whether addressing the smothered desire of suburban housewives, the white-collar despair of Manhattan office workers, the grim humour that attends life on a tuberculosis ward, or the heartbreak of a single mother with artistic pretensions, Yates ruthlessly examines every frayed corner and tear in the American dream. Published with a moving introduction by the novelist Richard Russo, The Collected Stories of Richard Yates will stand as its author's final masterpiece.
