Synopsis:
Chronicles the marriage of Harvard graduate and budding poet and playwright Michael Davenport to radiant Radcliffe graduate Lucy Blaine in 1950s Europe as it founders under the strain of Lucy's million-dollar inheritance and the struggles of Michael's writing career. Reprint.

Review:
"YOUNG HEARTS CRYING fails for the most fundamental of reasons: because Michael Davenport is not an interesting or appealing man. He is so self-pitying that there is no room for our pity. He has few ideas, and he explains them too much--to himself and to us....Just as Raymond Carver's characters, or Frederick Barthelme's, may exasperate us with their improbability, so Mr. Yates's people may try our patience too, for the contrary reason....It seems that our writers either go too far, or not far enough. Since the too far is gaining on us, we should be grateful to Richard Yates. Even if his flues need cleaning, he does try to keep the home fires burning."

Anatole Broyard, New York Times, 10/28/1984

In Young Hearts Crying, Yates movingly portrays a man and a woman from their courtship and marriage in the 1950s to their divorce in the 70s, chronicling their heartbreaking attempts to reach their highest ambitions. Michael Davenport dreams of being a poet after returning home from World War II Europe, and at first he and his new wife Lucy enjoy their life together.
