August Farewell Searching for Gilead

August Farewell

In this thoughtful and deeply personal memoir, David narrates the sixteen days after his partner Bill was diagnosed with terminal cancer and intersperses vignettes drawn from their thirty-three years together as a gay couple.

During their lengthy relationship, both were deeply committed to social and environmental justice, loved the arts and traveling, cared for their aging parents, and embraced faith and spirituality—values that were never more important to them than during the final days of Bill's life.

August Farewell offers an intimate portrait of a loving relationship brought to an abrupt end and affirms the power of love in the face of adversity.
