The Rain May Pass is a coming-of-age memoir from Alan Shayne-actor, casting director, producer, and former President of Warner Bros Television. Set in New England in the 1940s, a teenage boy falls in love with a man twice his age and soon learns more about himself than he ever imagined possible.

"Alan Shayne shares his life in such great visual style, with self-awareness, warmth, deep humor, and pain...a great read! Don't miss it." (Linda Lavin, Broadway, film, and television star)

"I loved The Rain May Pass. I savored every page. I felt like it was so heartfelt and honest that it broke my heart. With truthfulness and dignity, it captured and explored ageless virtues, failures, self-doubts, anxieties and other challenges that add up the bricks that construct a life." (Rex Reed, renowned film critic)
