In the author’s own words:
"Eleven years after my last divorce I moved to Boston at age 66, after a lifetime in California, to live platonically with a 23-year-old female college student. I still thought my marriages failed because I had married the wrong women--crazy women. Finally, I realized that I must have had some role in destroying these marriages.
"Encouraged by my roommate, I embarked on a journey to uncover my role. My attitudes about marriage had been profoundly influenced by my place on the cusp between the moralistic generation of the 1940's and 1950's and the next generation that embraced "sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll" and greater independence and equality for women. I was also deeply troubled by my choice of a career that seemed only to help the rich get richer. These issues propelled me to avoid dealing with my marriages.
"My memoir is a story of these marriages and divorces and uncovering my role through intense introspection and the writing process. I hope and believe it will help others deal with issues in their own relationships.”
335 pages in length, Digging Deep: A Writer Uncovers His Marriages is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the autobiography and personal memoirs category.
