The Ballad Of Gussie & Clyde
A True Story Of True LoveLarge Print - 1997
It was about five years ago that Clyde Latham, a retired high school football coach in Spur, Texas, lost his wife of fifty years. He was alone, and lonely, until Gussie Lancaster arrived from California. She was widowed and, a lifetime earlier, had befriended Clyde, practically grown up beside him. When Gussie arrived at the airport, Clyde didn't recognize her. Still, they fell in love. These two proud octogenarians, acting like teenagers. Madly. Deeply. With an almost adolescent desire for the companionship, support, and magic only romance can bring. In The Ballad of Gussie and Clyde, Clyde's son Aaron Latham describes this extraordinary flowering, using his skill as a storyteller (he's the author of Urban Cowboy) and his affection as a son. For not only did Gussie and Clyde's union rekindle their lives, it also altered the texture of Aaron's relationship with his own family.
