About the book:

Dan Savage--America's most irreverent, taboo-busting, flat-out funny sex-advice columnist--shares his revelatory misadventures in adopting a baby

Welcome to Dan Savage's world: He's gay, dispenses sex advice to "breeders"(straight people), and at age thirty-two, finds himself in a long-term relationship. He decides he wants a baby in the house, his boyfriend agrees, and so they set out to make a family. Unfortunately, this also makes him a target of oppressive rhetoric among certain conservative groups, and a sellout to his gay friends. But all he can think about are the joys of parenthood--if only the birth mother weren't homeless and admitting to drinking and drugging during the pregnancy; if only people would stop asking "Why do you want a kid?"; and if only Dan could stop offending all the infertile straight couples at the adoption agency. The Kid is a no-holds-barred attack on conservative "values," and also a celebration of family and the lengths some people--gay and straight--will go to in order to create one of their own.
