The Man in the Grey Flannel Suit

The Man in the Grey Flannel Suit

Author(s): Sloan Wilson

Location(s): Westport

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): 1950s



This is the story of Tom and Betsy Rath, a young couple with three children, a nice home, a steady income. They have every reason to be happy, but for some reason they are not.

Universally acclaimed when it was first published in 1955, the novel captured the mood of a generation. It was a sensational best-seller that was made into an award-winning film with Gregory Peck, it was translated into twenty-six languages, and its title has become a permanent part of our vocabulary. Today, it is more relevant than ever.
