About this Item

Green-Blue Boards look almost new, dust jacket very good, 1/4" off dust jacket at the top of the spine and a 1 inch tear at the bottom of the spine of the dust jacket. Yesterday's son is a poignant story of a love that never reached its full flower. John Corey is a professor of English literature. As college opens one fall, Corey's peaceful life with his work and his friends and his wife is suddenly rent apart one day in his classroom by something which brought back to his mind a summer idyll of twenty years past. It was Jessica whose face so suddenly appeared in Corey's mind. He had almost been able to forget her in those intervening years--almost, Jessica Pindar, the then young bride of Nathaniel Pindar, the reserved and haughty scion of an old Massachusetts family, and an up and coming Boston banker. It seemed that those summer evenings, when the heavens were crowded with stars and the fields heavy with smells and sounds of night, conspired that these two should fall in love. But it was only for a few breathless weeks and then Jessica left with her husband, and John Corey went back to Conrad to teach English. Everything was over until twenty years later, that day in Corey's classroom when it all came back with a flood of rememberance. From, here William Wilson tells an unusual and haunting story of a handful of people enmeshed in patterns which came up out of the past to threaten all of their happiness. With the skill of a master William Wilson Keeps his interest until the last sentence, and one closes the book with the profound satisfaction and enjoyment that a piece of first rate writing always gives.
