Westfield London Book Club: Eleven Kinds of Loneliness by Richard Yates

Tuesday 24th June 2014 7:30pm - 8:30pm Westfield White City, Foyles Unit 2054, Westfield, White City, London, W12 7GE Literary Event, Free Event

First published in 1962, a year after Revolutionary Road, this sublime collection of stories seems even more powerful today. Out of the lives of Manhattan office workers, a cab driver seeking immortality, frustrated would-be novelists, suburban men and their yearning, neglected women, Richard Yates creates a haunting mosaic of the 1950s, the era when the American dream was finally coming true - and just beginning to ring a little hollow.

The Foyles at Westfield London Book Club meets on the last Tuesday of every month in the Old Library at the Bush Theatre. Book Club members enjoy 15% off each month's book when bought from our Westfield London store - ask instore for more details, or email our Duty Managers at whidms@foyles.co.uk.
