In The Rest Of The Way psychotherapist Enid Duchin Jackowitz tells the story of her son’s coming out over twenty years ago. Her journey is one of personal transformation and reconciliation that can help parents cope with, and overcome the myriad of feelings that come with the news: I’m gay. The author deals with difficult feelings that some parents face like: shame, denial, guilt, anger, and homophobia through stories from her own life, in a way that can help both children and parents gain a greater understanding of each other’s journey. When children come out of the closet, parents often go into the closet. But there is a way out. The reader can learn how the love they have for their gay family member can be the catalyst that allows them to confront the prevailing cultural bias. The book’s message is a universal one that many parents will identify with: How to find the way back to their child after a painful separation, and begin the process of healing.
