by Glenn Reid

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Passion and the Prostate is a love story, a musical journey, and most importantly, a tale of survival. It carries the message that life doesn't end when a doctor says "cancer", and tells of the wonderful gifts that can still lie in wait. Each chapter starts with a quote from the song that was inspired by the experience told and the emotion evoked.
Passion and the Prostate is a memoir of a, roughly twenty-one month period in the author's life, and contains three main story lines. Falling in love and getting married for the first time, while also watching a single from his first album climbing the European Country Music Association's charts, and having to deal with a prostate cancer diagnosis and operation with all that that entails. All three stories are told with a wry humour and a positive outlook that will amuse, surprise and touch the reader. It is also a look into the Songwriters mind revealing how life experiences - both positive and difficult - are translated into songs that summaries a life changing experience in 3 minutes.
