Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates

There are any number of good reviews of this out there. I’m just going to say


and that goes for the film too, which really does justice to the book. A rare and felicitous occasion.

For the record, I read it in Vienna cafes, an oddly cultural and urban location for this tale of the new suburbia.
