Synopsis: Written by one of America's finest contemporary novelists, Other Men's Daughters is the story of an intense love affair between a middle-aged professor and a young woman, wise and worldly beyond her years.

One reviewer writes, "I...was struck not simply by its psychological depth but particularly by the combination of toughness and tenderness through which romantic love was represented and discussed. The lack of sentimentality (in a novel about the refusal to live a life without love) was immensely important to me...and is likely ...to be immensely important ...today."

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.
