Candid Gay Bio, Living the Difference, Published by Espresso House Publishing & Distribution
Espresso House Publishing & Distribution, LLC, announces the latest highly anticipated autobiographical book from Oklahoma City, OK, author J. C. Knudson.
J. C. Knudson always knew he was different.
Growing up in the small-town South during the 1960s and ’70s, he didn’t know what to make of his growing sense that he just wasn’t interested in the same thing as his friends -- girls. Was something wrong with him? Could it change? And -- most of all -- were there others who felt the same as he did?
Living the Difference is the first in a remarkable coming-of-age series that chronicles Knudson’s quest to understand himself and make his way in the world as a proud gay man. This raw, intensely personal book details his early efforts to inhibit his desires through marriage; to seek out a community of like-minded people; to start a career free from discrimination;
More than just one individual’s unique story, Living the Difference is required reading for anyone trying to understand the twentieth-century American gay experience -- in a time before widespread media acceptance and anti-discrimination laws. This heartening yet frankly realistic memoir will also give hope and understanding to those coming to terms with the sexuality of themselves or their loved ones.
Its message -- of acceptance, tolerance, and understanding -- provides good counsel, no matter the time or place.
242 pages in length, LIVING THE DIFFERENCE: an enlightening story revealed for people of all ages straight or gay is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the autobiography category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, LIVING THE DIFFERENCE meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $14.95 and $29.95 for the paperback and hardback editions, respectively.
