Recent release “The Adolescent Years of Benjamin Bird” from Page Publishing author MD Gage is the evocative sequel to his prior book, “The Formative Years of Benjamin Bird”. Benjamin wages a daily battle with himself and his attraction toward other young men, which would have been anathema to his family, his church, his conservative community.

MD Gage is an emeritus professor of history at Tarrant County College in Fort Worth now enjoying his retirement while operating a registered Simbrah cattle ranch in Clay County, Texas. He has published his new book “The Adolescent Years of Benjamin Bird”: a compelling second installment in his Benjamin Bird trilogy.

During the adolescent years of Benjamin Bird, he wrestled with inevitable post–World War II socioeconomic and technological change, the breakup of his extended family, transitioning from the country to the city, from public school to college, and from confusion over his bisexuality.

Published by Page Publishing, MD Gage’s engrossing book is an illuminating story of an adolescence marked by angst and fear of discovery for a teenage boy struggling to accept his sexual attraction to other men in midcentury America.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “The Adolescent Years of Benjamin Bird” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
