YATES, Richard
Little Brown (1961), Boston. Yates's powerful first book which Kurt Vonnegut called "the Great Gatsby of our time." Tennessee Williams said of this book: "Here is more than fine writing; here is what, added to fine writing, makes a book come immediately, intensely, and brilliantly alive. If more is needed to make a masterpiece in modern American fiction, I am sure I don't know what it is." The Academy-Award winning film AMERICAN BEAUTY echoes its theme of a soulless modern suburban marriage, and indeed this book too was made into a less successful film reuniting Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet from TITANIC. No one forgets the truth; they just get better at lying. Small bump to bottom of the front board, few tiny stains to bulked fore-edge of text. Near Fine in a price-clipped, Very Good dustwrapper which has been trimmed about 1/4" at the top edge and with a little chipping and short tear at the bottom of the spine [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Charles Agvent, est. 1987, ABAA, ILAB [Fleetwood, PA, U.S.A.]
