"Edwin and John" is the biographical narrative account of a southern love story between two gay men, set against the backdrop of World War II and the post-war South. Spanning over 50 years, the relationship between John Zeigler and Edwin Peacocke carried them both from their roots in the conservative South, through service in World War II, to a placid and loving literary life where they opened a bookshop in what was then the small town of Charleston, South Carolina. In "Edwin and John" award-winning author James T. Sears interweaves diaries, letters and poems to craft an innovative first-person narrative style to relate the fascinating and moving history of how these two men endured war, intolerance, and jealousies, proudly and publicly shared their life together, and triumphed in spite of affliction and personal tragedy." Edwin and John" is an intimate and moving portrayal of the hard realities of growing up gay in the South during the early decades of the 20th century and of the ways that these two remarkable men found solace and hope through their close friendships with some of the greatest writers and artists of their era including Prentiss Taylor, Carson McCullers, and John Bennett. "Edwin and John" will touch and inspire casual readers and historians alike and will certainly endure as an unforgettable account of the triumphs of courage, dignity, and love.
