In the timelessness of this relationship the archetypal pair of master and disciple with its characteristic erotic charge appears here in a modern garb where the disciple often surpasses his master in relational sensitivity and practical wisdom. The common ground of this uneven pair is an unwavering loyalty and a deep, passionate love for one another where sexuality becomes the glue that binds two souls together in an inseparable union.
Of all the good books Joseph Dispenza has written this is his best. Love seems to have opened the door to poetic expression and taken him to new heights of visual evocativeness in his writing. In one courageous leap of faith he has plunged himself into his own depth of human vulnerability where the specter of social stigma, sickness, old age and loss of life looms large against the background of a loving relationship with a much younger partner. The honesty that was required to write this groundbreaking book is deserving of the greatest respect. --Sabine Lucas, author of Past Life Dreamwork: Healing the Soul through Understanding Karmic Patterns
Redemption comes in many forms. We like to think that we `do' life, but the truth is that it does us. Joseph Dispenza has given us a tale of deep authenticity, of how the sacred came to him in the form of a loving relationship, and how it transformed his life. "God" is not elsewhere, he seems to be saying; it's the daily process of living itself. --Morris Berman, author of The Reenchantment of the World and Coming to Our Senses: Body and Spirit in the Hidden History of the West
Older Man/Younger Man is a brave, groundbreaking book. It's not just a gay man's story; it is a stunningly beautiful and universal story of love, courage, and faith. The author's compelling narrative pierces the heart with fundamental truths: love transcends age, sexual orientation, and religious conditioning; love heals; love is timeless; love binds us all.
This book invites us to more closely examine the transformational power of love, no matter where we find it, no matter the age, skin color, religious beliefs, or sexual orientation of the bearer.
I applaud Dispenza for his courage and honesty. He boldly paves the way for generations to come. I am a better person from reading this riveting story. It forever changed how I view love. I couldn't put it down! --Robin Easton, author of Naked in Eden: My Adventure and Awakening in the Australian Rainforest
This book bravely goes directly to the issue and makes an eloquent case for deeply committed love across generations as another, and perfectly normal, way of engaging in meaningful relationship.
Intensely personal, this memoir of the first decade of a profound love between two men of vastly different ages is also a story that all of us can relate to, whatever our gender, whatever our age.
