Overview

"Older Man/Younger Man" is a memoir of the relationship between a middle-aged man and a man thirty years his junior, from their first meeting, through the challenges of living together across a wide age-gap, to a climactic confession of shame and regret, the terror of loss from a life-threatening disease - and, ultimately, the triumph of love.

This is a passionate, bittersweet story of a powerful love that transcends gender, bridges generations, defies convention, and brings to the partners the richness of spiritual fulfillment.

The relationship between an older man and a younger man is one of the last taboos left in our culture's sexual closet. "Older Man/Younger Man" is the first book to address an inter-generational gay male relationship as a path of spiritual redemption.

What makes this book unique and special is its presentation of the pairing between an older man and a much younger man as a healthy, successful relationship and as a spiritual journey.

Winner of the 2012 Readers View Award.

    A Gift of Love

    Courageous. Honest. Revealing. Beautifully crafted. Poetic.

    This is an extraordinary memoir of love between two men, and the hopes, dreams, struggles, and triumphs they encounter on their journey. It is also a universal story of the kind of love that can survive, transform, and transcend the bounds of our limited physical existence.

    The scene with the author and his dying brother is poignant and moving; the pacing is quick and mesmerizing; the descriptive passages of Santa Fe near the end are exquisite.

    Full of wisdom, wonder, and insight, this book will change the way you look at love and life.

    I recommend it highly.

    A terrific read

    I found Older Man Younger Man: A Love Story a charming read and stayed awake to finish it. Veteran wordsmith Joseph Dispienza who has written so brilliantly across a very wide range of subjects turns his acute lense on himself and his much younger life partner and we are all the wiser for it. The book is wonderfully honest and touched my heart again and again.
