Advance Praise for Comeback Love:
“Stirring and romantic, a sweeping novel about first loves and second chances”
— Sarah Pekkanen, author of The Opposite of Me
Atria Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, purchased Peter Golden’s novel, Comeback Love, and published a new version, edited by Greer Hendricks, on April 3, 2012. The novel was represented by Susan Golomb of the Susan Golomb Literary Agency.
Over thirty-five years ago, Gordon Meyers, an aspiring writer with a low number in the draft lottery, packed his belongings and reluctantly drove away, leaving Glenna Rising, the sexy, sharp-witted med student he couldn’t imagine living without.
Now, decades later, Gordon is a former globetrotting consultant with a grown son, an ex-wife, and an overwhelming desire to see Glenna again. Stunned when Gordon walks into her Manhattan office, Glenna agrees to accompany him for a drink. As the two head out into the snow-swept city, they become caught up in the passions that drew them together then tore them apart, and as the evening unfolds, Gordon finally reveals the true reason for his return.
Moving between past and present, Comeback Love is a journey into the hearts of two lovers who came of age in the 1960s and is a sensual exploration of youth, regret, desire, and the bonds that mysteriously endure in the face of momentous change.
“Grab a handful of tissues, think The Notebook and then start speculating on actors best suited to bring Gordon and Glenna to the big screen. ” — Kirkus’ Reviews, April 1, 2012
