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!

Glad I got it.

I was worried about this book being published in 1999 and I found it surprising how relevant it still is. His concerns, brainstorming it parallels me and my fiancé as we are talking about this now. We want kids some day. It was touching and above all it was really helpful. I listened to this after American Savage and it made for a better listen.
