Richard Yates, who died in 1992, is today ranked by many readers, scholars, and critics alongside such titans of modern American ficiton as Updike, Roth, Irving, Vonnegut, and Mailer. In this work, he offers a spare and autumnal novel about a New England prep school. At once a meditation on the twilight of youth and an examination of America's entry into World War II, A Good School tells the stories of William Grove, the quiet boy who becomes an editor of the school newspaper; Jack Draper, a crippled chemistry teacher; and Edith Stone, the schoolmaster's young daughter, who falls in love with most celebrated boy in the class of 1943.

Richard Yates was born in Yonkers, New York in 1926. Yates was a well-known American novelist and short-story writer. Yates first became interested in writing and journalism while attending Avon Old Farms School in Avon, Connecticut. After Yates' return from France and Germany after serving in the army, he worked as a journalist, publicity writer, and freelance ghost writer. It was not until 1961 that his career as a novelist was officially launched with the publication of his first novel, Revolutionary Road. Revolutionary Road was a finalist for the National Book Award and was subsequently made into a movie in 2008. Yates also taught writing at several universities and institutions including Columbia University, Boston University, Wichita State University, and the University of Southern California Master of Professional Writing Program. Yates was divorced twice and has three daughters: Sharon, Monica, and Gina. He died in 1992 in Birmingham, Alabama of emphysema and complications from a minor surgery.
