    Everyone┬┐s worst nightmare has happy ending in this book

    Increasingly, Baby Boomers find they ¿don¿t get no respect.¿ Often referred to as ¿the Me Generation,¿ Boomers are characterized as having launched the sexual revolution, trashed the culture and the family. But authors Gary and Kathy Young ¿ straight out of Hollywood, no less ¿ have inadvertently put the lie to this portrayal. Anyone still wistful for things like picket fences and romantic love will find much with which to identify in Loss and Found. This true story revolves around, first, the agonizing death of two young people¿s former spouses from aggressive cancers, followed by the unexpected, exquisite excitement of finding each other in, of all places, a widow/widower support group. Drawn into this tantalizing cross between one's worst nightmare and a romantic comedy, the reader learns a lot about realities surrounding today¿s health care as well as picking up the pieces of one's life and moving on ¿ realities not typically found among the self-help shelves of your bookstore. Loss and Found is no 1950s-era soppy tale; nor is it the smiley-faced, Pollyanna stereotype of Doris Day-Rock Hudson vintage. Mental health practitioners will be astonished to find a ¿survival guide,¿ as the book is advertised, that manages to be funny, sexy, heart-wrenching and provocative ¿ all at the same time. What readers will find is a fast-moving and, most of all, upbeat account about falling head-over-heels in love just when you thought they were, uh, beaten. Upon examination, there¿s much to debate in Loss and Found for various and sundry experts out there who might be so inclined ¿ the dubious ethics of advanced medicine; the insensitivity of law enforcement, social services workers, and credit agencies; the pressures of modern society to become sexually promiscuous; the dearth of help available to young widows and widowers; not to mention the success of an insurance racket in disassociating ¿health¿ from ¿care.¿ But authors Gary and Kathy Young do not fixate on such questions. The surprise for most readers is that the two owe their self-renewal to their implicit determination to locate new spouses, not merely new ¿relationships.¿ The intricacies involved in establishing such a bond after a 20-something hiatus from the dating scene ¿ and in a culture that seems to have turned its back on commitment ¿ fortunately turns out more humorous than aggravating for the reader. One would have imagined that proximity to the nesting place of fare like ¿Ally McBeal¿ and ¿Sex and the City¿ would at the very least have prepared the authors for altered views about ¿singlehood.¿ But Loss and Found is a hit precisely because it provides character insights that readers won¿t find in People Magazine or TV¿s Entertainment Tonight. Merely rubbing elbows with Hollywood¿s elite doesn¿t make the world depicted there real. Musical mates are not for everybody. Perhaps what¿s so endearing about the book is that, in following their story, we discover as much about us as we do about the authors, Gary and Kathy Young.
