The Easter Parade has an astonishing sweep and weight. Richard Yates, who died in 1992, was the author of seven novels, including Revolutionary Road, and two story collections. Richard Yates is an incredibly readable writer. This is a simpler novel than the famous Reservation Road, and without as much melodrama, but, perhaps because of that, even more powerful.

The Easter Parade is a novel by American writer Richard Yates. First published in 1976, Yates' fifth book explores the tragic lives of two sisters. Along with Revolutionary Road, his debut novel, the book is considered to be Yates' finest work. The famous opening line of the novel warns of the bleak narrative to follow: "Neither of the Grimes sisters would have a happy life, and looking back it always seemed that the trouble began with their parents' divorce.

Even as little girls, Sarah and Emily are very different from each other. Emily looks up to her sensible older sister and is jealous of her relationship with their absent father, and later her seemingly golden marriage. The path she chooses for herself is less safe and conventional and her love affairs never really satisfy her. Although the bond between them endures, gradually the distance between the two women grows, until a tragic event throws their relationship into focus one last time

I'd forgotten about Richard Yates, but his stark evocation of middle class striving manages to be both bleak and inspiring. Joan Didion called The Easter Parade "Yates's best novel", and it's my favourite, too.

I'd forgotten about Richard Yates, but his stark evocation of middle class striving manages to be both bleak and inspiring. The Easter in question isn't, as that holiday usually is, symbolic of renewal; instead, it stands for the last innocent days in the lives of two sisters. Sarah dresses up to take part in New York's Easter Parade with her handsome fiancé and her younger sibling Emily watches, giddy with the promise life holds.

The Easter Parade is now widely regarded as Yates's other great novel. I would say it's one of the most important works of fiction by an American in the late 20th century. The Easter Parade stands as one of those small, quiet masterpieces which speaks volumes about the fundamental sadness at the heart of everything, and which poses that most unsettling of questions: can we ever really comprehend ourselves? Douglas Kennedy's eighth novel, 'Leaving the World', is published by Hutchinson.

Richard Yates is an incredibly readable writer. In concise descriptive language, no purple prose, no hyperbole, he opens the door to his characters' lives and we step in to watch and experience whatever they experience. This is a simpler novel than the famous Reservation Road, and without as much melodrama, but, perhaps because of that, even more powerful. These two sisters are as different as sisters can be, caught up in their times [from WWII through the 80's] and caught up in the depressive ambiance of their mother, an abandoned unstable woman. And yet, they both have an almost desperate need for male companionship, and the correspondingly poor sense of self. Both capable writers, but without ambition or sense of their own potential, they relinquish their talents to boring existences - one as a homemaker, another as a dissatisfied copywriter - and neither ever fulfills themselves in any way. A sad portrait, intricate and beautifully rendered, this novel is not for anyone longing for high plot, rather thoughtful character-driven fiction that seems dated, but is an accurate reflection of lives gone by. Might be especially great for fans of Mad Men, without the hype.

This one didn't do it for me. I really enjoy Richard Yates' writing but I really hated all of these characters. They aren't exactly supposed to be likeable but I just couldn't generate any empathy for them whatsoever. This is really just another depressing story about "the great disappointment that is life' via Richard Yates that fell below the mark for me.

In reading THE EASTER PARADE, focus on the seamless craft of Richard Yates, not on his bleak story. This story features Sarah and Emily Grimes, who, in youth, seem positioned to enjoy promising, albeit not spectacular, futures. But too little money, too many children, and too much booze erode Sarah's marriage while Emily's good start--a scholarship at Barnard--leads only to bad-luck relationships with troubled men, mediocre jobs, and alcoholism.

What Yates accomplishes with this gloomy material is amazing. Somehow, he manages to make the inexorable and parallel glides downward of these sisters into a riveting tale, where childish competitiveness, pride, or selfishness keep the sisters from reconciling or helping each other. Throughout, Yates never points fingers or explains their isolation. Instead, he simply shows the slow collapse of two lives. Only at the very end does he offer an observation that sums up THE EASTER PARADE. "When terrible things happen," says Emily's nephew, "there usually isn't anyone to blame."

A good book. (And tonight, I'll skip that nightcap.)

"Easter Parade" follows sisters, Emily and Sarah Grimes, over forty years. They enter adulthood during WWII, and their lives follow tremendously different trajectories. Sarah is the traditional one: she marries early, has three children, and settles into a seemingly idyllic life in the countryside. Emily is more independent, and she experiences a series of unsatisfying intimate relationships and drifts through life. The novel chiefly concerns the relationship, or lack thereof, between the sisters and their family. The story climaxes in the 1960's with mild invocations of the women's liberation movement, and Yates draws clear parallels between the sisters and their times. Although the time period is specific, the characters remain amazingly relatable and universal.
The most exceptional aspect of Yates's writing is the effortlessness with which he encapsulates life: "The Easter Parade" is a relatively short novel - yet it's remarkably complete due to Yates's talent in creating scenes that so clearly recapitulate a particular period in the sisters' lives. Yates is best-known for his brilliant debut, "Revolutionary Road." His subsequent novels have received considerably less acclaim - an untenable situation considering the quality and exquisiteness of his writing. With "The Easter Parade" the story is simple but heart-breaking; the characters are unforgettable; the final epiphany is indisputable. Most highly recommended.

I don't think this is Yates' best work but it is still pretty damn good. The man was a hell of a writer and it shows here just as in everything else he wrote. And the characters certainly hold some interest for the reader although essentially they are all just alcoholics. The write-ups on this novel make it sound like it is primarily about both sisters but really the novel centers around Emily and her blind journey through life. It is a bit of a downer but then so is everything else Yates ever wrote.
