Description:

8vo. Black cloth spine with gilt lettering and green paper over boards, pictorial dust jacket. 2443pp. Very good/very good. A tight and handsome first edition of this fiction set at Harvard about a middle-aged academic and a young female student, signed boldly by Stern in blue ballpoint on the front flyleaf. Rather uncommon, especially signed. The prolific Stern (1928-2013) taught at the University of Chicago and cranked out two score of award-winning fiction and nonfiction -- "Other Men's Daughters" being his best known work.

Synopsis: “Until the day of Merriwether’s departure from the house—a month after his divorce—the Merriwether family looked like an ideally tranquil one” we read on the first page of Other Men’s Daughters. It is the late 1960s, and the streets of Cambridge, Massachusetts, are full of long-haired hippies decked out in colorful garb, but Dr. Robert Merriwether, who teaches at Harvard and has been married for a good long time, hardly takes note. Learned, curious, thoughtful, and a creature of habit, Merriwether is anything but an impulsive man, and yet over the summer, while Sarah, his wife, is away on vacation, he meets a summer student, Cynthia Ryder, and before long the two have fallen into bed and in love. Richard Stern’s novel is an elegant and unnerving examination of just how cold and destructive a thing love, “the origin of so much story and disorder,” can be.

Book Description: The classic novel of a middle-aged man's affair with a worldly younger woman.

For more than forty years, Richard Stern has earned the admiration of writers like John Cheever, Saul Bellow, Norman Mailer, Philip Roth, Flannery O'Connor and Joan Didion. TriQuarterly Books and Northwestern University Press are proud to reissue three of his most celebrated novels, including Other Men's Daughters. New forewords relate these works to our time and describe the mastery which in 1985 won Stern the Medal of Merit for the Novel given by the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
