In this first-of-its-kind book, Andrew Gottlieb, author of Out of the Twilight: Fathers of Gay Men Speak and Sons Talk About Their Gay Fathers: Life Curves, continues his landmark exploration of family and sexuality. In Side by Side, 18 men and women from varying religious and economic backgrounds share, in plain language that is easily accessible to most adolescents and adults, the experience of what it was like to find out about their sibling's homosexuality and how that knowledge affected them over time. Some of their perspectives will surprise you; many will move you. What they have to say is revealing--about themselves, about the nature of sibling relationships, and about the role of their generation within the larger family.To view an excerpt online, find the book in our QuickSearch catalog at
