'As brilliantly nuanced as Updike's Rabbit sequence, and as sad as anything by Fitzgerald' Nick Hornby, Guardian
This is the story of Frank and April Wheeler, a bright, beautiful, and talented couple whose empty suburban life is held together by the dream that greatness is only just round the corner.
With heart-breaking compassion and clarity, Richard Yates shows how Frank and April mortgage their hopes and ideals, betraying in the end not only each other, but their own best selves.
