Pat Faunce yearns for more than his carefree New York life and his open relationship with Stu, an airline pilot. Above all, he wants to be a father. He persuades a reluctant Stu to move to Cape Cod, where they enlist Debora, a charismatic Brazilian immigrant, as a surrogate mother. But the men's attempt to have a child creates new emotional complications--with Stu's parents and sister, with Debora and her husband, and with each other. Building to a harrowing conclusion, this fearless, darkly funny novel asks whether making a new family is worth risking the one you have.

Does having children fix relationships? Individuals with secret histories that want to cure their lives: gays, straights, surrogates, immigrants…all these points-of-views come together in a well-written story. Not a thriller but real lives with twist and turns. Excellent. (submitted by JW)

This book sounds like the NBC comedy "The New Normal," nothing more, nothing less.
