Overview

Good-bye, I Love You is the true story of a wife, her homosexual husband, and a love that transcended tragedy when he came home to die.

First released in hardcover in 1986, Good-bye, I Love You was the first widely acclaimed memoir of what was to become a continuing tragedy: death resulting from the AIDS virus. Since problems related to AIDS take an ever-increasing toll, the continuing popularity of Pearson's book is no surprise. It may be that no one has documented the heart-wrenching effects of homosexuality and the AIDS epidemic on the American family better than Ms. Pearson.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Poet and playwright Pearson here movingly recounts the difficulties and tragedies undergone by herself and her husband, a devout Utah Mormon couple. Although aware of Gerald's homosexual past, Carol had faith that marriage would overcome her husband's sexual preference. The shock of discovering, after eight years of apparent happiness and the birth of four children, that his inclination was still for males shook her belief in her own femaleness and the role of women. Moving to the more permissive atmosphere of San Francisco, they obtained a friendly divorce but remained very close as a family. When Gerald was stricken by AIDS, their love withstood this ultimate trial, providing support throughout his illness and the strength to face death with serenity. First serial to Woman's Day; to be a CBS-TV movie. (September 10)

    Thank you, Carol Lynn

    I will be eternally grateful to Carol Lynn. All the others books I read on this subject focused on the straight spouse so much that I learned next to nothing about gay spouses and what they went through. Carol Lynn's book is the one and only book I have come across that deals with both sides. And she gets it right. I highly recommend this book to both gay and straight spouses. It's too bad it is out of print.
