Staff Recommendation: Revolutionary Road

Richard Yates is a preeminent storyteller of the 20th century; literary pundits agree that Revolutionary Road represents the pinnacle of his career. Set in post-war America in the 1950's, this is a tale of the insidious routines that capitalist societies construct around their constituents to acculturate them--to entrap them. This ingeniously crafted novel is assuredly a masterpiece.
