This is a bittersweet, emotional story of love, life and the chemistry that affects behaviour. "Chemistry" is the emotionally charged story of Neal and Zach, passionate gay lovers torn apart by mental illness. At first meeting, they discover a sexual and emotional chemistry that cannot be denied. Then, as illness consumes one, each must grow, repair himself, and work to become stronger and more independent to ultimately conquer the life-crushing consequences wrought by mental illness and emotional dependency. This touching, introspective story will move readers and have them thinking about the motivations and events in their own lives. Neal Bauer is an intellectual and rather controlled gay man, in love with the idea of being in love. His past holds an unhealthy relationship which he struggles to come to grips with. Now he is faced with another relationship with a man in which he can lose himself, a descent of self into the inevitable trap of co-dependence. The story of the chemical attraction between lovers, the brain chemistry that determines personality and mood, the medications needed for regaining mental health, and the relationships between people who care for one another, "Chemistry" is an enthralling and compelling novel of courage, liberation and self-realisation.
