Review Text

  • By Allan R. Wilson on January 27, 2009

    Of course I am biased, I wrote one of the 23 essays, One Day I Will Lie Down Beside You. I naturally had to read the other 22 essays, and they are all good, and some are excellent. 5 of the 23 are from gay men, but others are from men who are happy not having kids, from men who have regrets, and from a few who couldn't have kids. This would be a good anthology for men about to get married, it will help them sort out the issues of whether or not they should or would have kids. Also for gay men, with gay marriage in place, and even some with chances to adopt, you are no longer left out of the loop. As a teacher who has taught many screwed up kids who came from heterosexual parents, no one can convince me that a well balanced gay couple couldn't do a better job. My essay was different from the others, and I want to thank the editors for allowing me to fully express myself over the course of 2000 words. I am the one that is different, a father who is no longer a father, but is still in some ways a father. My only child, Josh, died from cancer at 16. His courage lives on and you will get glimpses of that from my essay (it was also reprinted in the Toronto Star and now another magazine in Canada is also going to reprint it). It will be hard to read it, but on the other hand, some readers have been incredibly positive in their compliments to me. It's a very interesting, professional anthology.
