Double Life: Portrait of a Gay Marriage From Broadway to Hollywood

'“Though Double Life is a perfect plea for equal rights, it never preaches but merely looks candidly at the terrific, if at times turbulent, relationship of two fabulous, sexy men who dared love each other openly. I laughed and gasped at its inside-show-business stories and was intrigued by the cutthroat advertising and art worlds. Brilliantly written, filled with humor—and occasional heartbreak—Double Life follows a fifty-year marriage, revealing its love and warts.” —Joan Rivers“A love that once dared not speak its name sings freely—and beautifully—in Double Life, a fascinating, frank and page-turning memoir about the lifelong love affair of two extraordinary men.” —Candace Bushnell, author of Sex and the City“How exceptionally fine at this precarious moment in our history to be able to read the moving story of a love affair between two men, spanning some fifty years of faithful togetherness, utter and complete devotion and responsible and fulfilling achievement. Alan Shayne and Norman Sunshine have written a valuable document to show the world that yes, we can do it too.” —Larry Kramer “I read Alan Shayne and Norman Sunshine’s Double Life in one big gulp. You can’t imagine how much I loved it. This memoir becomes their legends most!” —Liz Smith “Anyone living in a long term relationship, gay or straight, will find him/herself in the pages Alan Shayne and Norman Sunshine have written. They know what it’s like to be together for a long time and they tell it like it is, with wit, courage, honesty and tenderness. From Broadway to the Village to Madison Avenue to Hollywood, they have tales to tell and they tell them brilliantly.” —Alfred Uhry, Pulitzer Prize and Academy Award–winning author of Driving Miss Daisy“A life well lived does not always make a book well written, but here, in this truthful and affecting work, are two carefully maintained lives without a mortgage, paired by fate and synchronized from two points of view like a pair of mated butterflies. Reading about their lives has taught me a lot about my own—one riveting, wisely observed revelation after another by two extraordinary men with a lot to give. When I grow up, I want to be just like Alan Shayne and Norman Sunshine.” —Rex Reed “It’s a page turner. The story of two exceptionally talented people. The book’s excellence stands as proof that their talent and successes, illuminated by their love for each other, are justified and deserved.” —A. R. Gurney, author of the play Love Letters'
