A Trip Down the Yellow Brick Road

S. Stanley Gordon has created an autobiography that should appeal to a very wide audience - people who love memoirs (especially a little on the wild side), devotees of insider information on Hollywood and Broadway and the accompanying stars, those who want to understand the history of the emergence of gay life in the United States during the past century, lovers of love stories, and in general the curious public at large. This sparkling book represents the life o

"My Two Wives and Three Husbands" by S. Stanley Gordon is a very sweet and endearing read that I will remember for a long time because of the way this author cared so much about finding love, who he found it with and his obstacles along the way. Mr. Gordon and the trials and tribulations in which he dealt reminds me so much of those also faced by the late E. Lynn Harris which he writes about in his memoir,"What Becomes of the Brokenhearted: A Memoir."
The author begans his story very appropriate

No matter who you love, the heart doesn’t lie.

This was a wonderful read, sprinkled with joy, pain and love and laughter. During hi

I commend Stanley for telling his story. Along the way there are some great times and some sad times like all of us. After everything he has been through so far he has come out of it with joy, caring, loving let it roll of your back kind of attitude. His story can teach us all about love no matter who it is. I also enjoyed reading about Hollywood, broadway and London. Its nice to see society it slowly changing and not judging who people should and should not love. A love story anyone would be ha ...more
