Booklist called this "a welcome addition to practical gay literature". David McWhirter and Andrew Mattison, authors of The Male Couple, say it's "must reading for all male couples", while Michael Shernoff of the National Lesbian/Gay Health Foundation, says it's "bound to become a classic". This widely acclaimed relationship guide for gay men is now available in paperback.

While heterosexual couples have broadly based support systems in mainstream society, male couples do not. Isensee explores gay male relationships by examining the difficulty of maintaining successful male-male bondings in a hostile, homophobic society. He discusses problems unique to homosexual relationships--gay parenting, monogamy versus open relationships, AIDS, and coming out to one's own family, as well as dealing with "in-laws." Isensee uses dialog between lovers in realistic situations as a way to aid the reader in initiating communication with his partner when the going gets tough. All in all, this is a helpful book. Additional books of interest on this subject include Betty Berzon's Permanent Partners : Building Gay and Lesbian Relationships That Last ( LJ 11/15/88) and Eric Marcus's The Male Couples Guide to Living Together ( LJ 3/1/88). Large public libraries should have all three.
