Richard Yates at the Remainder Table

On a weekend trip to DC's finest bookstore, Politics & Prose, I found, in the remainder section, not only a hardcopy version of Yates' "Collected Stories," but also three paperback copies of "The Easter Parade." Needless to say, I bought them all (at $7 and $4 respectively, it was difficult not to grab them all -- they make great presents). But it is pretty disturbing that one of greatest authors of the last half of the 1900's finally gets his books back in print only to have them remaindered around a year later.

If you see one, pick it up.
