Anton Myrer is such a craftsman with words that he is always a pleasure to read. He captures time and place (before, during and after The Great Depression) with telling detail and fills the landscape with convincing characters. As with much of his work, we are led into the great struggle of man pulling through tough times. A great book, but not quite up to the mark of "The Big War", his masterpiece about the Pacific War, WW2.

Anton Myrer crafts his works with large as life characters, accurate historical scenes, and tension between the characters and their social environment.

Awful!

In the tradition followed by the likes of Richard Russo this is a complex and well designed story. The characters are well delineated and believable. It is a thoroughly tantalizing read and I enjoyed it very much.

A Green Desire starts with two young brothers being separated. The younger brother, Tipton, stays with his mother and a life of poverty, the older brother, Chapin, goes off with his rich aunt to live a life of privilege. It is this separation which defines them as the story progresses from 1911 to its conclusion over forty years later. The two boys grow up to be fierce rivals. They compete in business, but most of all they compete for Jophy, a beautiful woman of Portuguese descent, who is as passionate as she is desirable.
Tipton and Chapin resemble the main characters in Myrer's famous novel of military life, Once an Eagle. Tipton is like Sam Damon, honourable and straight, a natural leader, leading by example. Chapin is similar to Courtney Massengale, devious and cunning, selfish and amoral. But here the resemblance between these two novels stops. A Green Desire focuses on civilian life. The story passes through two world wars, but its emphasis is on the battles of civilian life. Tipton fights to get ahead and raise himself from poverty through his own efforts. Chapin fights to maintain his life of privilege and to acquire power in the world of business. To do this both have to get though the Crash and the Depression.
Myrer shows that he was a wonderful storyteller, because he makes this story just as exciting as his stories about the military. The characters are vivid and believable and the story is full of incident. His description of life during the Jazz Age and the Depression is full of convincing details. A Green Desire is a well-written novel, pleasant and quite easy to read. Myrer has realised that he no longer needs to use obscure words to show off his talent as a writer. Now he just shows with clear memorable sentences that, at his best, he could be a very fine writer indeed. This is a powerful and moving novel. It may well be Myrer's best.

I read A Green Desire when I was a student in college. At the time I suscribed to a book club (decades before Oprah had hers)and this was one of the book of the month selections. I thoroughly enjoyed the story. It probably would have drawn a strong comparison with a television mini series in the 70's called Rich Man, Poor Man. Two Brothers who took different routes in their lives but still tied together through a common desire for love and power. Thirty years later I still remember the title of this novel when I can't remmember a lot of other things. I guess that's a testament to how good this book was.
As 1. a New Englander and 2. the child of parents who lived through most of the period described in Myrer's Green Desire I loved this book. Two brothers, one defined by the old-school and who-you-know and the other by an unconquerable work ethic, tangle in a web spun by the dazzling daughter of a Portuguese fisherman's family. It is contemporary drama meeting the Great Depression head on. These are characters you won't soon forget.
