Books I recommend

Today, I refer you the Amazon.com listing of my friend David's new book, which will be out in December. (Not February, as the listing states.)

He's brilliant. It'll be great. Buy it. Order it as soon as you can. David is my mentor as a playwright, a generous, witty, warm, wicked guy. The book is about same-sex marriage. Not objectively...his experience being married to his husband Jason. Front lines of the civil rights movement, I'd say.

Also, in support of my brother Danny, buy his partner's books.

Here they are.

They help keep my brother and Joe eating and paying rent. They're also subtly subversive reads. They are almost Judy Bloom for the young gay man. In a culture that treats Gay Culture like a challenge to the status quo, a little "Wonder Years" is just the thing.
