Universally acclaimed when first published in 1955, The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit captured the mood of a generation. Its title -- like Catch-22 and Fahrenheit 451 -- has become a part of America''s cultural vocabulary. Tom Rath doesn''t want anything extraordinary out of life: just a decent home, enough money to support his family, and a career that won''t crush his spirit. After returning from World War II, he takes a PR job at a television network. It is inane, dehumanizing work. But when a series of personal crises force him to reexamine his priorities -- and take responsibility for his past -- he is finally moved to carve out an identity for himself. This is Sloan Wilson''s searing indictment of a society that had just begun to lose touch with its citizens. The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit is a classic of American literature and the basis of the award-winning film starring Gregory Peck. "A consequential novel." --Saturday Review
Sloan Wilsonwas born in Norwalk, Connecticut, in 1920. He is the author of more than a dozen books, includingA Summer Place. He lives in Virginia.
