This is my first Richard Yates book. And so far so good. There are some brilliant lines in this bad boy. The kind of prose that will make you reread entire pages, to fully savour the poetry. Tao Lin and Noah Cicero are big Richard Yates fans. And Tao Lin is gonna be releasing his novel, "Richard Yates" this year I believe which I can't wait to read. So I decided to stop dragging my feet and finally read him. After Revolutionary Road, I plan reading The Easter Parade and Eleven Kinds of Loneliness.
I will let you know how it went.
FYI...2666 by Roberto Bolano gets an A- from me. I really think it's that good. I will write more about it later.
