First Love and Other Sorrows: Stories by Harold Brodkey

Harold Brodkeys masterful first volume of short fiction, with two never-before anthologized stories. When originally published in 1958, First Love and Other Sorrows won Harold Brodkey widespread acclaim and announced a brilliant new arrival on the literary scene. Brodkey was hailed as an unusually gifted writer (The Atlantic) and a rich talent (San Francisco Chronicle), whose stories read like murmured confidences, highly personal yet carefully contrived (Chicago Tribune). In First Love and Other Sorrows, the young Brodkey chronicles the world of the educated and affluent middle class of the 1950s, at leisure and in love. He establishes the themes that would appear throughout his career--the painful uncertainties of childhood, the halting intimacies of social life--with rare terness, humor, and haunting insight. Two new stories, never before collected, from Brodkeys early writings join the original volume to complete a much-loved classic.
