I am reading Revolutionary Road because I like to read the book before I see the movie. Read it. It’s so well written I have to pause between sentences to catch my breath. Richard Yates intimidates me and demoralizes me in terms of ever writing. Then I read his biography, which includes several mental breakdowns, two marriages and setting his apartment on fire and damaging his lungs (he died of emphysema). Now, I’m not so keen to be him. But still, what talent. I can’t wait to read the other stories in this collection of his I bought from Chapters on-line. And, to see how Kate and Leonardo handle the Wheelers.
