There is no hotter issue than gay marriage in the culture-war debate, and Dan Savage, one of America’s most outspoken and beloved columnists, takes it on and makes it personal in this rollicking memoir of coming to terms with the very public act of marriage. What he discovers will make readers—gay or straight, right or left, single or married—howl with laughter as well as rethink their notions of marriage and all that it entails. (book jacket).
Dan Savage has written a memoir about a very traditional two parent, 1 child, 1 dog family. The only hitch is that there are two dads trying to decide if marriage, as it is for gay parents, is worth all the hassle. The Commitment is a quick paced novel that expands your knowledge of Savage and his family from his other memoirs. You also get an in-depth commentary on the issues facing gays and lesbians in the United States. 2005, 291 pages.
