Joseph and The Old Man
Joseph and The Old Man by Christopher Davis
Cherry Grove, situated along the magnificent beach of Fire Island, is the setting for this unusually poignant and joyful love story. The Old Man, a world-famous novelist, young at heart, lives with Joe, some thirty years younger, sleek and tan. Surrounded by steady friends and finding fulfilment in each other, the Old Man and Joseph are deeply content to enjoy another summer until life deals them one of its unexpected hands. A hauntingly beautiful story, Joseph and the Old Man is reminiscent of Andrew Holleran's Dancer from the Dance and Edmund White's Nocturnes for the King of Naples.
