Older Man/Younger Man: A Love Story is a book for everyone. Don't make the mistake of seeing it as gay genre, although it is an amazingly beautiful love story about two men. It is this, and so much more. Women will LOVE this story. Straight men will find the story provocative and thought-provoking. This book is a book about the state of being a human being; of being someone who loves and gives and wants to be loved.

Once a Catholic monk, Joseph Dispenza leaves the order to find his true nature and his true calling, which is being loving, and healing, to himself and others. He must first overcome the residual shame of leaving the Catholic church and of growing up gay in the mid-1950s. There are few of us who do not struggle with similar issues, and Joseph shares this journey with us with a touch as exquisite as a Michelangelo brush stroke.

And that is the real joy of reading this book. It is written by a master writer, who will keep you with him on this wonderful read. Be careful of the time of day you start reading it--you could be up all night!
