You Should Read ______________

American Savage by Dan Savage

I devoured American Savage on the plane ride to Cancun. I couldn’t help it. I had read Dan Savage’s other books, The Kid and The Commitment, and I listen to his podcast weekly, but apparently my brain required more Dan Savage. It happens. Savage catches up his readers on what has happened in the years since he married Terry (in Canada first–then finally in Seattle once gay marriage became legal) and since D.J. (The Kid) became a teenager. The book is worth reading just for those sections alone. Savage goes beyond all that to make some serious statements about America’s broken systems. For those who watched Savage debate Brian Brown, you will be happy to know that he covers that whole episode in a very funny and enlightening section (hint: Terry FTW). Even those who are not regular listeners to the podcast (and why aren’t you? Get on it!) will find much to love and reflect on in this book. Seattle, you better appreciate Dan-you get so many nice things unlike those of us who live in conservative cities in conservative states.books
