Publisher's Summary

Barrington Jedidiah Walker is 74 and leads a double life. Born and bred in Antigua, he's lived in Hackney, London, for years. A flamboyant character with a fondness for William Shakespeare, Barrington is a husband, father, grandfather - and also secretly gay.

His deeply religious and disappointed wife, Carmel, thinks he sleeps with other women. When their marriage goes into meltdown, Barrington wants to divorce Carmel and live with Morris, but after a lifetime of fear and deception, will he manage to break away?

With an abundance of laugh-out-loud humor and wit, Mr. Loverman explodes cultural myths and shows the extent of what can happen when people fear the consequences of being true to themselves.

Interesting read

Interesting story. Author has a way with words! Tastefully written. Performances were awesome. Subject matter a reality that should probably be discussed more.

The truth will set you free.

I loved the book. What a better world this would be if we all can live our truth. Barry got off a little toi easy I think. however I'm glad it ended with a happy ending.
