Halpern and Johnson

By: LIONEL GOLDSTEIN

Joseph Halpern is a seventy years old, grunty, angry man; he has worked as a laborer, but later he has been managing his own business. (His company manufactures cardboard boxes.)

Dennis Johnson is also about seventy, he is an elegant, sophisticated, moderate, well-mannered gentleman; before retiring he worked as a chartered auditor. (He would not even say bookkeeper.)

The two men have never met and clearly have nothing in common. Apparently. But the encounter is bound to happen, and when they finally meet, it turns out that they have one  thing in common...

As they begin to know each other, it turns out, that old secrets and lies was silenced for fifty years. Halpern and Johnson have a lot to say about marriage, about human relationships, and about how little we can know the person closest to us.
