A book of poetry written in the aftermath of the author's excommunication from the Church of Jesus Christ of latter Day Saints. His transgression? The establishment of a perfectly lawful and... More > celibate, UK Civil Partnership (a same-sex union, but NOT a same-sex marriage). To contrast with the "high" induced by early missionary visits, the poems he wrote in 1992 are also included. The contrast shows delusion and brainwashing and then awakening and honesty. The book is certainly in the nature of a cathartic necessary to survival of withdrawal from a cult. But it is forceful and unapologetic and fiercely indignant at the behaviour of a Church which professes Christian love, but is unmoved by tragedies caused by bigotry and prejudice. Such bitterness as there may be is now external to the author for whom a new life beckons at the age of 66. The power in the poems themselves is manifest.< Less

More > military, anti-Communism, and, although too young to vote, Senator Barry Goldwater when he ran for president in 1964. Then, in the Sixties, he went to college and became swept up in the movements of the times. He came to realize that everything he’d believed about “his war,” the Vietnam War, was wrong. He came to believe that we were more than just on the “wrong side.” We were the wrong side. Eventually he was drafted. However, he refused induction into the military, preferring to face five years in prison, the maximum sentence, rather than fight in an immoral war. This memoir describes his journey through the Sixties, from a working class gung-ho Goldwater Republican supporter of the Vietnam War to a radicalized anti-war activist who was eventually drafted to fight in that war -- but refused to go.< Less
