In a time when much of the country sees red whenever the subject of gay marriage comes up, Dan Savageoutspoken author of the column Savage Love makes it personal. Dan Savages mother wants him to get married. His boyfriend, Terry, says no thanks because he doesnt want to act like a straight person. Their six-year-old son DJ says his two dads arent allowed to get married, but that hed like to come to the reception and eat cake. Throw into the mix Dans straight siblings, whose varied choices form a microcosm of how Americans are approaching marriage these days, and you get a rollicking family memoir that will have everyonegay or straight, right or left, single or marriedhowling with laughter and rethinking their notions of marriage and all it entails. BACKCOVER: Hilarious, heartfelt. Seattle Post-Intelligencer As funny as David Sedariss essay collections, but bawdier and more thought-provoking. Publishers Weekly(starred review) Most of all, a book about creating and appreciating family. Seattle Times I think America would be a better place if everyone on every side of the gay marriage debate would read this book. Ira Glass, host of the public radio show This American Life The strongest argument here, which [Savage] brilliantly plays down, is that family means everything to these people: married, not married, blended, gay, straight, whatever.
