If you have an interest in performing arts, you may also have sympathy or even empathy for the characters of a new work of fiction: In Younger Men's shoes by novelist Frank Demain, a tale of love, envy, sexual pleasure and harassment, financial worries, hatred, disaster and joy.
David Barstow is a struggling actor who has reached that age where he must soon decide if acting is indeed a viable career for him. To add to his woes, some of his family of their friends find difficulty in accepting his partner and fellow actor, Rebecca Cameron, because of her Caribbean origins.
Uninvited and unwelcome advances offer possible solutions to their financial plight before support and respite come from unlikely sources. The respite proves to be short-lived and David seeks parental support - in vain. Then tragedy overtakes them and it is left to one family member to provide solace and care for Rebecca.
In Younger Men's shoes by Frank Demain is available in digital format from Amazon for less than the price of a latte!
