About the Book

IT IS NEVER easy to have a child, but gay parenting involves special difficulties. In this novel, gay college professor Marc Brandt arranges to have a child with a lesbian couple, anonymously. What follows, as shown in letters, e-mail, faxes, and a journal, are comedy, pain, fanaticism, loves, hatreds, accusations, plus clever and cruel deceptions, the very latest of the modern in having kids, as well as the oldest of the human.

"Interesting. Provocative.” -- Toby Johnson, White Crane Journal

“It has ideas, style, and bite. Once I got into it, I couldn’t put it down.” -- John Lauritsen, author of The Early Homosexual Rights Movement

“Few attempts at fiction in the form of letters work so well.” --Jerry Rosco, author of Glenway Prescott Personally: A Biography
