A Somewhat Geriatric Love AffairBook - 2008
"After years of friendship, something shifted. Paul and Emily found more than a marriage. They found companionship and love that transcended what came before. Read a moving account about the love and hope that struck two unique people well on in life. This book will give hope to anyone who figures they're out of the game of love." -Deirdre Sinnott, author and speaker Carrying On is a memoir of a late-life love affair between long-time friends. The book describes the five-year partnership of an affable, sunny, brilliant and charming research scientist and the author. His half-century affliction with hepatitis C was known to her. What she discovered during their life together was his severe dyslexia, simmering rage, and pervasive sense of inferiority. His dealing with these problems, and his humor, enthusiasm for all aspects of life, and his continuing fascination with his science made him eminently lovable, and smoothed the rough spots in their relationship. The final stage of his disease was both expected and accepted by both. They spent the final weeks of his life at home, living.
