American Savage

Genre: Essays; Author: Dan Savage; Publisher: Dutton Adult

It’s been nearly eight years since The Commitment, but America’s most famous gay sex columnist is still the same Savage. His latest collection takes on kink-phobia, bi-phobia, and Halloween (”the straight pride parade”) with a get-real voice shot through with generosity and candor. Chapters on gun control, health care, and sex education are over-stuffed with old facts and understuffed with new ideas; they illustrate hypocrisy without examining it. But Savage’s essays on fatherhood, cheating, and the subset of Americans, in American Savage, who still think sexuality is a choice are powerful messages for both the head and the heart. B
