Fiction. Literature. HTML:

In Young Hearts Crying, Yates movingly portrays a man and a woman from their courtship and marriage in the 1950s to their divorce in the 70s, chronicling their heartbreaking attempts to reach their highest ambitions. Michael Davenport dreams of being a poet after returning home from World War II Europe, and at first he and his new wife Lucy enjoy their life together. But as the decades pass and the success of others creates an oppressive fear of failure in both Michael and Lucy, their once bright future gives way to a life of adultery and isolation. With empathy and grace, Yates creates a poignant novel of the desires and disasters of a tragic, hopeful couple.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Recién casado con Lucy, una adorable mujer con una pequeña fortuna, las expectativas para triunfar en la vida son inmejorables.Pero el paso del tiempo, despiadado, va destruyendo sueños y resquebrajando la felicidad conyugal, lo que obliga tanto a Michael como a Lucy a buscar refugio fuera de su matrimonio, en otra parte de ese mundo en el que todos parecen más felices y seguros de sí mismos.

I couldn't decide whether this was a 4 or a 5. I found the beginning a little lagging, but the ending really brought it home. Some regurgitate themes and plot points from other works (*cough Bellevue), but still a great read. Well, that's the last Yates novel I have to read. Only the last collection of stories. But Yates has quickly become a new favourite. One of those authors whose whole bibliography is amazing, and I will always devour. ( )

This book is generally well reviewed, so my expectations were fairly high. It was my introduction to Yates, and it has not encouraged me to continue with his other works. The female characters just didn't work for me; they seemed to be barely distinguishable. And eventually I just had to laugh at the way every woman Michael Davenport met instantly became his lover, even though he appears to view females as prey whose only value is their appearance. ( )

This was classic Yates - fractured lives and relationships coupled with superb writing. His subject matters are often similar to Updike's, but I feel there is always a little more redemption in his characters, and they tend to be a victim of circumstances more than their own weak morals as so many of Updike's protagonists are.

I don't think it's my favourite Yates, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. A master at work.

4 stars - if only I could learn a tenth of what Yates achieved in writing. Sigh. ( )

Interesting times, and characters involved in issues which are specific to the times and the positions they either want for themselves or find themselves in. People meet, communicate, have relationships and drift appart, over and over again. A sentence from the end of the book sums it all up, really - "Essentially, we are all alone." ( )
