From the Back Cover:

"Hilarious, heartfelt."
Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"As funny as David Sedaris’s essay collections, but bawdier and more thought-provoking."
Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)

"Most of all, a book about creating and appreciating family."
Seattle Times

"I think America would be a better place if everyone on every side of the gay marriage debate would read this book."
—Ira Glass, host of the public radio show This American Life

"The strongest argument here, which [Savage] brilliantly plays down, is that family means everything to these people: married, not married, blended, gay, straight, whatever."
The Washington Post
