About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for A Father's Words: A Novel by STERN, Richard.

Description:

8vo. Brown and tan cloth, pictorial dust jacket. 189pp. Very good/very good. Almost, but not quite, rates a "Near fine" all around -- tight, clean, nice. Later printing of this slim novel , signed boldly by Stern in black ballpoint on the front flyleaf. Laid in is a 1p 4tp (8" X 11") printed press release issued by the "Stuart Brent Book Club," a Chicago area marketing ploy by this well-known independent Chicago bookstore -- similar to the Kroch's & Brentano's "First Edition Circle," also of Chicago, in which the reader received one personally signed book per month. The Brent review closes with, "One way you can tell Richard Stern is a responsible human being as well as a Chicago writer is that on page 65 he mentions the Stuart Brent Book Store.".

Book Description The University of Chicago Press, United States, 1990. Paperback. Condition: New. New edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. Cy Riemer-fifty-ish, divorced, and father of four-surveys the dispersal of his family with a mixture of anxiety, humor, sadness, and pride. In this wry, moving, and wise novel, Richard Stern offers his masterful portrait of Cy as the quintessential caring yet controlling parent, a relentless seeker of self-knowledge whose search is intensified through conflicts with his brilliant, ne'er-do-well son Jack. The "manipulation of a smart, sane, self-justifying narrator . . . is not the least of Stern's achievements in this delicate fabrication of tough prose and tender adjustment of sentiment."-Geoffrey Wolff, Los Angeles Times "Richard Stern's novels are robustly intelligent, very funny, and beguilingly humane. He knows as much as anyone writing American prose about family mischief, intellectual shenanigans, love blunders-and about writing American prose."-Philip Roth "A delectable rhetorical display. . . . "-The New Yorker "Anyone who has read Richard Stern's previous novels won't need to be told he is an unusually crisp and intelligent writer, with a sharp edge to his wit; and in A Father's Words he runs true to form. Many of the book's pleasures are incidental: jokes, intellectual cadenzas, agile turns of phrase . . . The author's powers of farcical invention climax in a brilliant, bitter episode where . . . the younger man proclaims his final failure . . . Mr. Stern has written an excellent novel."-John Gross, New York Times "Richard Stern is American letters' unsung comic writer about serious matters . . . [A Father's Words] produced in this reviewer an apostolic desire to convince a wider audience to try Stern, especially the vintage Stern."-Doris Grumbach, Chicago Tribune.
