Eleven Kinds of Loneliness

Richard Yates - Eleven Kinds of Loneliness

Betyg: 4

Richard Yates' "Eleven Kinds of Loneliness" is ever so slightly excellent. I'm not normally much for short story collections, but this one really got to me. 11 stories of people failing, stumbling over their own (not necessarily big) ambitions, little slices of life for people who feel all too real, all told with such compassion and gentle dark humour that I can't help but love them. I had never read Yates before and had no idea what to expect going in, but I know I came out a fan. Now where's "Revolutionary Road"...
