Mary Gordon

The Love of My Youth


Mary Gordon, author of the acclaimed novels Pearl and Final Payments, returns with a beautifully choreographed novel about first lovers meeting again after more than thirty years. Miranda and Adam are masterfully portrayed personalities intent upon understanding who they are in relation to who they were. The Love of My Youth is a story about what first love means and how it is shattered and the lessons old lovers may still have to share with each other many years later.


“Since this is Gordon, you can rightly expect many thoughtful, penetrating insights into how we manage ourselves as we get older, all couched in shining and gently acidic prose.”
