Dan Savage‘s nationally syndicated sex advice column, “Savage Love,” enrages and excites more than four million people each week. In The Kid, Savage tells a no-holds-barred, high-energy story of an ordinary American couple who wants to have a baby. Except that in this case the couple happens to be Dan and his boyfriend. That fact, in the face of a society enormously uneasy with gay adoption, makes for an edgy, entertaining, and illuminating read. When Dan and his boyfriend are finally presented with an infant badly in need of parenting, they find themselves caught up in a drama that extends well beyond the confines of their immediate world. A story about confronting homophobia, falling in love, getting older, and getting a little bit smarter, The Kid is a book about the very human desire to have a family.
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 that reader off. 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.
