"Si se necesita algo más para realizar una obra maestra, no sé de qué se trata." TENNESSEE WILLIAMS

"Si Vía Revolucionaria no convierte a Yates en un escritor inmortal, la inmortalidad es algo que no vale la pena." Time

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
"So much nonsense has been written on suburban life and mores that it comes as a considerable shock to read a book by someone who seems to have his own ideas on the subject and who pursues them relentlessly to the bitter end," said LJ's reviewer (LJ 2/1/61) of this novel of unhappy life in the burbs. It is reminiscent of the popular film American Beauty in its depiction of white-collar life as fraught with discontent. Others have picked up on this theme since, but Yates remains a solid read. Recommended for public libraries and large bookstores. [LJ 9/15/00]
