The true story of a marriage (not really), a lovable and relentless mother, a six-year old who says his parents cannot get married (but wants to go to the reception), a partner who doesn’t want to act like a straight person, and the author, who has written a hilarious and poignant memoir about making “The Commitment.”There is no hotter issue than gay marriage in the culture-war debate, and Dan Savage, one of America’s most outspoken and beloved columnists, takes it on and makes it personal in this rollicking memoir of coming to terms with the very public act of marriage. What he discovers will make readers—gay or straight, right or left, single or married—howl with laughter as well as rethink their notions of marriage and all that it entails.Praise for Dan Savage’s Skipping Towards Gomorrah: ”Takes readers on a journey that’s as insightful as it is hilarious.” —Entertainment Weekly ”Laugh-out-loud funny.” —The Seattle Times -Savage’s “Savage Love” column runs in more than seventy newspapers in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. -Like the best political comedians, Dan Savage is a frank and honest storyteller whose comedy is funny but always insightful and necessary. -Dan has appeared on The Al Franken Showon Air America, Paula Zahn Nowon CNN, 20/20, MSNBC, and VH1.
