Revolutionary Road (Vintage Classics)

Revolutionary Road - Richard Yates, Lionel Shriver An astonishing, devastating book. The most affecting thing I've read since John Updike's Rabbit tetralogy (itself acclaimed by Booker Prize-winner Julian Barnes as "the best American novel of the postwar period").A tale of subarban discontent set in late '50s Connecticut and New York (think Mad Men) it has an emotional weight and resonance that few books can claim.
