Richard Yates

3 Feb 1926 - 7 Nov 1992

Richard Yates (February 3, 1926 – November 7, 1992) was an American fiction writer, identified with the mid-century "Age of Anxiety". His first novel, Revolutionary Road, was a finalist for the 1962 National Book Award. His first short story collection, Eleven Kinds of Loneliness, brought comparisons to James Joyce. His critical acclaim, however, was not reflected in commercial success during his lifetime, though interest in Yates has revived somewhat since his death, partly because of an influential 1999 essay by Stewart O'Nan in the Boston Review, a 2003 biography by Blake Bailey and the 2008 Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe-winning film Revolutionary Road, starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.
