2nd printing. Former library copy with usual marks. Previous owner attempted, clumsily, to remove the library mylar and lift the pasted-down jacket flaps from the endpapers - the result is two closed tears to the jacket panels (which we repaired on the reverse with Japanese tissue), and a ragged edge to the front jacket flap. The jacket is now protected under fresh mylar. Without the library marks, the book itself would be somewhere between very good and near fine. 1961 Hard Cover. We have more books available by this author!. 337 pp. 8vo. The first full-length novel by Richard Yates, examining the dark underbelly of an unhappy marriage in suburban America. Inspiration for the 2008 film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, and Kathy Bates. Winslet won a Golden Globe for best actress, and the film was nominated for numerous other awards. Yates's novel was nominated for the National Book Award, but despite some critics comparing his work to that of James Joyce, he did not gain a wide readership until after his death.
