Review:

Best known for his syndicated sexual advice column, "Savage Love", Dan Savage shares his own story in The Kid, a hilarious account of his efforts--along with his partner--to adopt a child. (Whoops, make that his boyfriend; Savage can't stand the "genderless" P-word: "Straight people and press organs that want to acknowledge gay relationships while at the same time pushing the two-penises stuff as far out of their minds as possible love 'partner.' I hated it.") Savage doesn't give an inch on the sexuality issue; it's hard to imagine that a homophobic reader would even pick up The Kid but if it happened, Savage's unapologetic presentation of his life would quickly scare offthat reader. Which isn't to say that he paints a rosy picture of homosexual cohabitation: The very first scene finds Dan's boyfriend, Terry, locking himself in the bathroom after a fight over the music on the car stereo. The misadventures continue through each step of the open-adoption process, in which Dan and Terry get to know their baby's birth mother and the first few weeks of parenthood. The Kid is a wonderful, charming account of real "family values" that proves love knows no limits. --amazon.com

Review:

"Savage tackles the politics of gay adoption head-on...Intelligent and honest...a love story, an argument, and a how-to book all in one".

-- The San Francisco Chronicle
