As the Wheelers attempt to live their peaceful suburban lives, the flaws of human emotion and misunderstanding slowly tear their world apart. Richard Yates, a man overlooked and undervalued in the literary scene, writes books that may break you. Yates taps into the ugliness, jealousy, apathy, denial and frustration that occur in relationships, daring readers to examine their own lives. Yates’ characters are so eloquently written and real, their faults so completely human, that the results are painful and familiar. A beautiful, captivating, and haunting book.
RATING: * * * * * One of the best books I’ve read
