Next up! Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates.

Revolutionary Road
Join us at the 
Merrick Library Wednesday Afternoon Book Discussion 

Wednesday, October 2nd
at 2:30pm
for a discussion of
Revolutionary Road 
by Richard Yates. 

Hailed as a masterpiece of realistic fiction and as the most evocative portrayal of the opulent desolation of the American suburbs since it's publication in 1961, Revolutionary Road is 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.
