By delineating the importance of place within the novel – an area that has provoked a good deal of discourse with respect to his first book, Revolutionary Road (1961), but which has not been explored in The Easter Parade – I demonstrate that Yates{\textquoteright}s topographical specificity contributes to the narrative beyond the realism for which he is famous. In particular, I argue that the network of real and imaginary places depicted within the novel actively shapes and fosters the existential loneliness of Yates{\textquoteright}s characters, which is closely connected to the experience of place. My overall aim is to particularize David Castronovo and Steven Goldleaf{\textquoteright}s observation that in his “notation of the suburbs, Manhattan, and the Midwest, Yates produces his most comprehensive account of American unhappiness” (124).",
