When their car breaks down on a Greenwich Village street, Evans father presses a random doorbell, looking for a telephone. Within hours, two familiessharing equally complex and addled historieswill come together. There will be flirtation. There will be a marriage. There will be a child, a new home But as Evan moves further into the uncharted land of manhood, as the women and men around him come into focus, he faces roads not taken and a journey not madein Richard Yates haunting exploration of human restlessness, family secrets, and a future shaped by them both.From the Trade Paperback edition.

Not quite as good as Revolutionary Road but very readable. I love his relatably messed-up characters.

SoniaC Thinking I may need to read this one. 7y
alice @SoniaC Do! It's a really quick read too - under 200 pages. 7y
SoniaC @alice ok wish listing it on Amazon right now so I don't forget! 7y

It was always important to have a plan in situations where you weren't entirely sure of yourself; otherwise your every chance at happiness could drift away and dissolve and be lost.

Very excited to read my next Richard Yates (especially in this glorious 1986 edition from the library). Revolutionary Road has really stayed with me since I read the book and watched the equally great film it a couple of months ago.

SoniaC Haven't read this one but I did read Revolutionary Road and you are very correct about it. 7y
Lillelara I recently finished Revolutionary Road and its just so good (the movie is great as well). I'm planning on reading more Yates in the future and I'm looking forward to your thoughts about this one. 7y
