Dan Savage's books always surprise me in that they exhibit a sensitivity and tenderness not often seen in his columns (which, in fairness, could be because of the nature of Savage Love.) This book is part memoir, part discussion of gay marriage. Although this book is likely preaching to the choir, the memoir aspect does personalize the issue, and Savage's adventures with DJ and Terry are sure to elicit a smile.

If you love Dan Savage, you'll love reading this book. Full of his trademark dry, sarcastic wit regarding the definition of his relationship with Terry, I loved this book.

Although more political than "The Kid", I'd recommend reading that one first (as that's the chronology of the books) and helps to put all his family information in context. But definitely read.
