In The Easter Parade, first published in 1976, we meet sisters Sarah and Emily Grimes when they are still the children of divorced parents. We observe the sisters over four decades, watching them grow into two very different women. Sarah is stable and stalwart, settling into an unhappy marriage. Emily is precocious and independent, struggling with one unsatisfactory love affair after another. Richard Yates’s classic novel is about how both women struggle to overcome their tarnished family’s past, and how both finally reach for some semblance of renewal.

    " This is the second Yates book I've read this year. Real literature that you can't put down. It's sad he never got the notoriety he deserved "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Trashpalace | 12/6/2010

    " Così come Revolutionary Road, un libro che scorre veloce ma lascia il segno, distruggendo impietosamente gli ideali borghesi e mettendo a nudo una disperata ricerca di felicità che troppo spesso si rivela vana. Richard Yates è senza dubbio la scoperta più bella che abbia fatto quest'anno. "
