Published in 1961, Revolutionary Road received critical acclaim and was a finalist for the National Book Award in 1962, along with Catch-22 and The Moviegoer.  The New York Times reviewed it as “beautifully crafted . . . a remarkable and deeply troubling book.”  In 2005 the novel was chosen by Time Magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present.
