The true story of the Mad Men. An era of sex, drugs, excess and work. A world a million miles away from the world we live in today... You think the TV show "Mad Men" told the truth... You know nothing...Boyd Lemon takes us with him on his journey to uncover his role in the destruction of his three marriages. With brutal honesty, courage and insight he uncovers and exposes his conduct and attitudes about women and marriage that had been profoundly influenced by his place on the cusp between the moralistic generation of the 1940s and the next generation that embraced sex, drugs and rock 'n roll and greater independence and equality for women. Deeply troubled by his career choice as a corporate lawyer, he nevertheless used it for years to avoid his marital issues. Lemon's story will guide you in resolving your own relationship problems. This book will have you ringside as one powerful man rips himself apart trying to find out who he really is.
What Other Published Authors Have Said About Digging Deep:

"...written with brutal honesty about the process of coming to understand himself and the failure of his marriages [and] provides insight into the...excesses of the seventies. A compelling read."
-Jervey Tervalon, best selling author of Dead Above Ground.

"...takes us through his years of brutal self-deception with gentle honesty and even a sense of humor...a narrator ready to own his, and his generation's, issues."
-Miriam Hall, writing teacher and author of At Home Here and Dreams of Movement.

"...a record of an "examined" life and he shows us a way to examine our own lives more deeply. His search for understanding of human foibles reflects our own half-truths, denials and glaring flaws. Lemon leads us where most of us fear to go."
-Sonja Lillvik, author of The Painted Fish and Other Mayan Feasts.

"His digging hits gold...[So]many were just like Boyd Lemon - or the women he married. It is painful. It is personal. But nothing about it is trite because it is the truth."
-Leigh Somerville McMillan, author of It All Started with a Dog.


Lemon left Boston and is traveling and writing in Europe. He plans to make Portland, Oregon his home when he returns to the United States.

About the Author:

After a stellar 40-year career as a nationally recognized attorney, Boyd Lemon discovered his passion, writing, and pursued it in the idyllic coastal town of Ventura, California; the literary, art and music scenes of Boston; a Bohemian year on the Left Bank in Paris; and finally by the bucolic rivers and forests of St. Marys, Georgia, where he currently lives. He has written seven books. His newest is "A Long Way To Contentment," a novel. He has also written a guide for retirement. Lemon has four adult children and four grandchildren. His second passion is travel, and he has visited six of the seven continents.

Review:

Boyd Lemon is perhaps one of the last "Mad Men" to admit that the era of sex, drugs, corporate growth and endless opportunities wasn't what it seemed. Boyd writes with startling honesty as he explains what life was really like for the powerful men who ruled the world of the 1960's. ~Novel Ideas
