Funny and Fun

I love the sound of Dan Savage's voice; I've enjoyed listening to him since I went through the This American Life archives, so I love picking up the audible books that he narrates.

I delayed listening to The Kid because I wasn't certain how relevant it would seem today. Other than a few minor references that make it clear that this story wasn't written yesterday (mostly references to where LGBT rights are, or how living in Seattle was then) this story is deeply touching. It's about trying to make a family, how people relate to each other and define their roles, and of course, Dan Savage being himself. A very sweet, funny, and touching story. Highly recommended!

Hot too much a story

I never thought about how gay adopted kids. And from my prejudice I don’t believe gay could be a good father. But this book is so relaxing and interesting, good to know they became terrific parents, and the author is soooo bitchy. Love him. Hate him. His description makes me wonder what Terry looks like, and what kind of person he is. Someone could fell in love with Dan,wow.
