Dan Savage's book The Kid is one of my favorite books ever. I love how he writes about his family - hysterical and touching all at the same time. So I happily picked up The Commitment and was very pleased. I love his stories; my only complaint is all the political arguing. His point is always so much better served through his own experiences. When he starts preaching against the Christian Right, I have to start skimming. Rating this a solid 7 on the Claire scale.
