Confessions of a Twice-Married Man
Courtesy of Goose Lane
Philip Lee has survived "the dark year" - a year in which two newly divorced brothers rough it, with no running water or indoor plumbing and contend with a feisty band of squirrels that inhabit their kitchen. Dishes are washed in the rain, coffee is made with a can and a blowtorch, a bucket becomes a make-shift shower, and renovation projects are abandoned almost as soon as they are started.
But life never stands still, and Lee churns his way into new chapters of his life with the help of a therapist, and the new love of his life. Choice literary snippets gleam among his personal epiphanies, life's losses, and small victories. Slowly, enlightenment dawns, and with it, a second chance at love and happiness.
With wry wit, warmth, and sensitivity, Lee shares a personal journey that takes him from the rivers and coastlines of Eastern Canada to the cities of China and the Greek island of Naxos. He cuts to the heart of the matter - how it is that we might lift ourselves up through the great work of love.
