A HEARTWARMING SAGA OF LOVE, SAILING AND LIFELONG DEDICATION Gene is a successful woodworker in New York with two passions in his life. One is sailing, from the abandoned islands that dot Long Island Sound to the fathomless depths of the Caribbean. His other passion is Kevin - the young man who was his friend, sailing buddy, and lover. DEEP WATER is the compelling story of a modern-day gay sailor and his adventures with Kevin and many other friends. It delivers a true sense of the realities - both harsh and sublime - of life under sail, whether navigating through Hell Gate in the East River or through dense fog in Cape Cod. More importantly, this book illustrates the special bond between two men committed to one another as they sail together, live together and care for each other through the best and worst of times.
"This is one of the most beautiful love stories I have ever read. Eugene Kahn allows us to share two achingly deep and profound passions - the love of wind filling sails, and of one man for another. And remarkably, almost as an afterthought, Kahn helps us make some sense of the inane horror of AIDS. I love this book." - Laurie Garrett, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Coming Plague
