Book Description

What does a straight man who is happily married with three daughters do, when he realises that he is at a cross road? That where he is in his life at that point, is not where he wants to be - going forward? This was the question that faced me when I decided to take stock of my life one night, sitting in my living room. I was 49 years old, the CEO of a large company in New Zealand and considered around town as a committed and loyal family man.

Was I simply going through a mid-life crisis, I wondered? Or was this maybe an unfulfilled fantasy that I needed to act out - to get these urges out of my system? Or was this in fact the real me finally ready to break loose?

This is my personal journey, told through a number of short stories - stories that span the years leading up to that life-changing decision and the early years that followed. These stories are not told in chronological order, but rather they jump about as if I was telling you a different story over a number of nights, in front of a log fire, with a wine glass in hand, a glass filled with a rich, ruby red Pinot Noir that New Zealand wineries produce so well.

The book contains tales about how I found my feet in the new world I entered that day. About the struggles I had with the ‘double life’ I had led, my doubts and confusion. About the euphoria I felt when I realised who the real me finally was and what it meant to me as a person, a husband and a father. As a gay dad, I was still the same person, wasn't I?

5.0 out of 5 stars Successful Coming Out October 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Stuart Fish has written a very personal, straight forward account of the dilemma he faced when he realized that his gay fantasies were actually more than fantasy. I appreciate his honesty and his willingness to share the challenges through a series of short stories that demonstrated the adjustments that he needed to make as a gay man after living his life as a straight man with wife and children.

I can only imagine the kind of courage that he needed in order to change his life so drastically and then to share it with the world.

Thanks, Stuart, for writing this book. I appreciate being able to understand a little bit better what my gay friends have had to go through.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Intriguing and Well Done Book September 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is not a traditional narrative biography, but, rather a series of stories for which you get the conversational feel of a man telling you his life over a few drinks. They work together to give you the beginning of Stuart Fish's life, as he goes about changing himself entirely, after he had arrived to a life for which most people dream of. Though such memoirs can often leave you annoyed, or uncaring of the writer, who begins seeking fulfillment and self-discovery, when again, other people would've felt fulfilled and discovered, Stuart makes an impassioned and interesting read, for which, you can come to understand life in general better.

The only question you then have is why should you care? Who is Stuart Fish?

Well, amongst these stories lay a good sense of humor, insight into search for more meaning, and the timeless need inside of all of us to find personal fulfillment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good short stories about the struggles of coming out. September 16, 2012
By CareDog
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Stuart's book about coming out is a very interesting read.

He documents the process through short stories which play out over many years.

Even at the age of 45 Stuart finds himself asking the eternal question..."Is There More To Life." A successful career, father, husband and former Army soldier turns to a new chapter in his life.

His short stories are easy to read, fun to follow and makes you think about life in ways others don't.

Keep living the life you want Stuart, good stuff.
