A Bisexual Man's Transformational Journey
Lawrence J.W. Cooper
On the outside he seemed to have it all: a happy marriage and family life, a successful career as an educational school psychologist, respect in his community, but on the inside he was slowly falling apart: he was gay. After 25 years of living a secret double life his guilt was tearing him apart, and he admitted his bisexuality. The subsequent divorce forced him to enter the challenging path of soul searching towards self-love and self-acceptance.
Kirkus Review: Cooper pours his heart onto the page in this debut, which is unequal parts autobiography, poetry, and self-help aimed at those who have struggled or are struggling with questions of sexuality, love, and belonging…The spare prose effectively limns Cooper’s difficult past; a childhood lived without affection is somehow made more heart-rending when starkly portrayed…. A thoughtful retrospective offering an unusual look at bisexuality from a poetic and historic angle.
During his 25 years as an educational psychologist and counselor in Saskatchewan and Alberta, he developed programs to help students with psychological and emotional problems adjust to the stresses of the school environment. He was invited to speak about his innovative teaching and counselling approach in Europe and North America. Now retired, he and his second wife live on Vancouver Island, BC.
