    Richard Yates, who died in 1992, is today ranked by many readers, scholars, and critics alongside such titans of modern American fiction as Updike, Roth, Irving, Vonnegut, and Mailer.

    The first full-length novel featuring Yates’ finest comic creation, Bertram ‘Berry’ Pleydell. Written in response to public demand for Berry stories, it is regarded as one of Yates’ best books.

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    Eight stories in which we encounter ‘the hair-raising adventures and idiotic situations of the Pleydell family’ (Punch).

Read these and weep (with laughter). more...

  • As Berry And I Were Sayingby Dornford Yates

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    This semi-autobiographical novel is a humorous account of the author’s hazardous experiences in France at the end of the World War II. Darker and less frivolous than some of Yates’ earlier books, it was a great hit with the public when published and a ‘scrapbook of the Edwardian age as it was seen by the upper-middle classes’. more...

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    This collection of short stories featuring ‘Berry’ Pleydell and his chaotic entourage established Dornford Yates’ reputation as one of the best comic writers in a generation, and made him hugely popular. The German caricatures in the book carried such a sting that when France was invaded in 1939 Yates was put on the wanted list and had to flee. more...

  • The Berry Sceneby Dornford Yates

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    These stories, written in response to huge popular demand, give us classic Berry Pleydell at the top of his form.

A self-consciously nostalgic work consisting of tense plotting and high farce of the best kind. more...

  • Blind Cornerby Dornford Yates

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    This is Yates’ first thriller: a tautly plotted page-turner featuring the crime-busting adventures of suave Richard Chandos.

Teaming up with friend Jonathan Mansel, a stratagem is devised to catch the killer. more...
