Pressestimmen"Here is more than fine writing; here is what, added to fine writing, makes a book come immediately, intensely and brilliantly alive...a masterpiece" -- Tennesse Williams "The literary discovery of the year... It's as brilliantly nuanced as Updike's Rabbit sequence, and as sad as anything by Fitzgerald" -- Nick Hornby Guardian Books of the Year "I hand out copies of Revolutionary Road to anyone who will take them...one of the most moving and exact portraits of suburbia in all of American literature" -- David Hare Observer "The Great Gatsby of my time... One of the best books by a member of my generation" -- Kurt Vonnegut "The best novel ever written about the death of the American dream" -- Kate Atkinson Daily Telegraph
