Older Man Younger Man
by Joseph Dispenza
A moving, riveting memoir of the relationship between a middle-aged man and a man thirty years his junior, from their meeting, through the challenges of a yawning age gap, to a climactic confession of shame, regret, the terror of loss from a life-threatening disease—and, ultimately, the triumph of love.
Throughout, the narrative reflects lyrically on older man/younger man love, remembering past lives in ancient Greece, the American West, a medieval monastery, Ming Dynasty China, and Renaissance Rome.
This is a passionate, bittersweet story of a powerful love that bridges generations, defies convention, and brings to the partners the richness of spiritual fulfillment.
