Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Richard Yates' novel The Easter Parade. First published in 1976, The Easter Parade introduces us to sisters Sarah and Emily Grimes when they are still the children of divorced parents. We observe the sisters over four decades, watching them grow into two very different women. Sarah is stable and stalwart, settling into an unhappy marriage. Emily is precocious and independent, struggling with one unsatisfactory love affair after another.
