March Book Meeting

  • Mar 25, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Barnes and Noble (Augusta Mall)

March: Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates

From Amazon:  "From the moment of its publication in 1961, Revolutionary Road was hailed as a masterpiece of realistic fiction and as the most evocative portrayal of the opulent desolation of the American suburbs. It's the story of Frank and April Wheeler, a bright, beautiful, and talented couple who have lived on the assumption that greatness is only just around the corner. With heartbreaking compassion and remorseless clarity, Richard Yates shows how Frank and April mortgage their spiritual birthright, betraying not only each other, but their best selves."

 

Hope to see you there!

    excellent repartee on a well written but cynical book.

    Magical! Momentous! Impetuous! Homeric! I imagine a similar meeting led to the Declaration of Independence!

      Good to know. I was looking forward to discussing this book, having feverishly read it this weekend. But I made other plans tonight. Dang it, I will definitely be there next time.

    Hello everyone. I was so looking forward to being there tonight but I have a family situation and I don't "feel right" attending tonight. Sorry for the late notice, please let me know how it goes and I will try to make the next meeting. P.S. This book is better than I thought it would be......

    Just finished the book. All characters are full of hypocrisy and lies and belong in an insane asylum . What a divine comedy! I have no empathy for any of these so called people and their human tragedy.

    Yates biting satire on the duplicity of the characters has me either laughing my ass off or falling on my ass with disgust.
