Other Men's Daughters

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.

Reviews
"For years I have admired the elegant fiction of Richard Stern for its impeccable language, its gracious erudition, and, above all, it's brilliant wit. In Other Men's Daughters, to me his most moving novel, these qualities serve the cause of mercy." -Thomas Berger
"[O]ne of the most valid contenders for the Great American Novel of the decade.... A beautifully written novel that should be read by everyone who cares about the human condition." -Philadelphia Inquirer
"It is a pleasure to find a novel written with such intelligence and feeling, a novel that judges none of its people but holds them up to calm and affectionate scrutiny. Other Men's Daughters touches very directly on contemporary existence but its real subject is the disruptions and exaltations of the human heart." -Washington Post
