"The most perceptive author of the twentieth century" (The Times)

"Yates is a realist par excellence, the natural heir to Hemingway's pared-to-the-bones style and the antecedent of Carver's flat minimalism. There is something else though: a kind of transparency, almost a translucency, that owes more to Fitzgerald, his great literary hero... Read and weep" (Kate Atkinson Guardian)

"Yates created what is almost the New York equivalent of Dubliners" (New York Times)

"Eloquent and powerful... Wryly funny even when he's quietly tearing your heart out" (Harper's)

"Extravagantly gifted... Yates' eye and ear are unsurpassed; I know of no writer whose senses are in more admirable condition. It is they that make his characters live, make these stories move and beat - they, and the sure perfection of his writing" (Esquire)


A mesmerising collection of stories from the superb Richard Yates

HASH(0x9b40df54) von 5 Sternen Only the Lonely 17. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
To put it simply: you must read this book. It is the most depressing, uplifting, poignant, ironic book I've read. That may seem like a contradiction in terms, but if you've read the book you know what I'm talking about.
Richard Yates writes about ordinary men, women and children -- "loners" leading solitary existences. A few stories, such as "Doctor Jack-O'-Lantern" and "Jody Rolled the Bones", are filled with bittersweet humor; others, such as "Fun With a Stranger" are downright sad. But don't think Yates is some depressed, manic-depressive writer, because he's not. Rather, his words, his characters strike you in a way you never thought possible, making you want to read them over and over again.

HASH(0x9af293d8) von 5 Sternen Sad Stories Say So Much 11. August 2009
Von Mick McKeown - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
A collection of short stories each portraying a different kind of loneliness. Yates' writing is nothing short of hyponotic. Every character let me into their little part of the world and showed their rawest and deepest emotion. As a writer, Yates honors his craft and I would suggest an aspiring writer to pick this up and learn from his work. Two of his stories had a profound effect me. The first one is about a young boy who starts at a new school and lies about everything. His situation was unique but reminescent of the feelings many of us had during those turbulent middle school years. The other story was about a guy writing stories for a cabbie. Eventually, the writer recognizes their "friendship" has no real foundation and the cabbie is a friend in name only. This slice from the scence of life is worth the read.

HASH(0x9af293fc) von 5 Sternen A Masterful Collection 29. August 2006
Von Jeffrey H. Maclachlan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
These stories will stay with me for the rest of my life, particularly "No Pain Whatsoever." Yates was a tremendously underrated writer, but hopefully won't stay that way. A must-read.

HASH(0x9af29720) von 5 Sternen Beautifully written characters studies of alienation 29. November 2012
Von Baranabus - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
So you can guess by the title that there will be few happy endings and life-affirming group hugs in this collection. If you want that, well... actually, maybe you should read this anyway. These stories are about people who don't, and can't, fit that formula.

Yates was so perceptive and evocative and could draw deep insight from the mundane. That's what a great writer can do. Some readers complained that Revolutionary Road was boring; of course, there are no reanimated dinosaurs or teenaged vampires. Yates writes for adults who enjoy character studies.

"Jody Rolled The Bones" is so excellent, with its lament of the soldier who chants the song named in the title: "Jody was your fair-weather friend, the soft civilian who took for granted everything you held dear". That's a butchered quote, but you get the idea. This is not just about 1950s alienation, that is a timeless divide between the ones who will die and the ones who will kick back on the sofa and relax.

These are some of the best short stories I've read by any author. Ignore the mediocre DiCaprio movie; don't let that deter you from reading Richard Yates if you haven't checked out his work.

HASH(0x9af2984c) von 5 Sternen Step Back in Time 23. August 2009
Von Cynthia - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I usually shy away from short story collections because I always feel like I've had a snack instead of a meal but Yates' stories are unexpectedly full and satisfying. He's so good at depicting time and place.....late 30's, 40's and 50's. His stories are grim as the title implies but they provide lots of insight into human motivations/feelings/relationships. These stories are well worth your reading time.
