The fiction of Richard Yates (1926-1992) is striking in its insistence on clear plots and well-etched characters at a time when the world of letters was welcoming the distortions of postmodernism. In "Richard Yates" Professors David Castronovo and Steven Goldleaf present the first full-length critical treatment of this significant and neglected figure in American realism. Arguing that "raw naturalism and subtle craftsmanship--semingly incompatible qualities--join to make Yates one of the most accomplished writers of the post-World War II period" the authors provide a comprehensive survey a Yate's life and work.
