When the Shepard's car breaks down in pre-World War II New York City, a chain of events occurs that transforms the lives of the Shepards and the Drakes, as Evan and Rachel meet, court, and marry. But betrayal, disappointment, and secret schemes are on the horizon.
From the Publisher:
In a small Long Island town during the first months of World War II, Evan Shepard, a young machinist married for the second time, agrees to share a house with his wife's family and becomes torn by divided loyalties.
Annotation:
In this short, melancholy novel--Richard Yates's last--Evan Shepherd, an F. Scott Fitzgerald kind of hero, comes to terms with the destruction of his youthful dreams and the sadness and disillusion that comprise his life.
Author Bio
Richard Yates
Richard Yates was born in Yonkers in 1926; his parents were divorced, and his mother--a sculptor--raised him. He skipped college, served in the Army during World War II, and was briefly one of Robert Kennedy's speech writers in the 1960s. He lived for a while in the South of France, which is where he began to write fiction. Married twice, he was the father of three daughters. Yates died in Alabama at the age of 66, the author of seven novels and several short stories. Among writers, Yates, for all his obscurity, is highly regarded as a satirist who nonetheless sees deeply into the human heart. His novel REVOLUTIONARY ROAD (1961), set in a particularly unappetizing version of suburbia, is considered his greatest work and has become a cult favorite.

Praise

New York Times
"Swiftly sketching in years of family history in a few, carefully wrought paragraphs, Mr. Yates writes of these characters with sympathy so clear-hearted that it often feels like nostalgia for his own youth, and yet he is also thoroughly uncompromising in revealing their capacity for self-delusion, their bewilderment in the face of failure....COLD SPRING HARBOR deftly engages the reader's emotions, detailing each character's desires and fears with casual, old-fashioned authority, while quietly setting in motion the events that will bind them together in an ever-tightening net of disappointment." - Michiko Kakutani 09/27/1986
