Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A popular sex-advice columnist offers a celebratory and incisive memoir discussing his decision, as a gay man in a long-term relationship, to adopt a child, creating problems with conservative groups, his own friends, adoption agencies, and a drug-addicted birth mother. Reprint.


Review:

"Savage's description of the bureaucracy involved in the adoption process does at times threaten to turn THE KID into a service-oriented manual, albeit a very specifically niche-marketed one. He walks us through the legal issues, the paperwork, and the waiting, but makes this sometimes tedious affair seem like fun by weaving in witty personal anecdotes and scenes of local color."

James Hannaham, Village Voice, September 1999

Review:

"Savage, known for his hilariously raunchy syndicated sex advice column, here serves up an unexpectedly touching account of his attempts to adopt a child with his boyfriend, Terry."

Entertainment Weekly, 10/8/1999

Book Description: Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 198 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. 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.
