The Kid: What Happened After My Boyfriend and I Decided to Go Get Pregnant - Dan Savage Detailed account of Savage and his boyfriend adopting a son. Witty, heart-breaking, and insightful. I got a good sense of how hard this process can be on both sides: the adoptive families and the biological mothers. Another author might make this maudlin or "educational," but Savage manages to keep you laughing while making you think and care. He'd be a hard act to follow.
