From actor/writer/producer Dan Bucatinsky, executive producer of NBC's Who Do You Think You Are?, a collection of snort-milk-through-your-nose funny stories of parenthood that will obliterate the boundaries of gender and sexual orientation, and sweep readers up on a journey into fatherhood-warts and all.
In 2005, Dan Bucatinsky and his partner, Don Roos, adopted a baby girl, Eliza Rose. Two and a half years later, the same birth mother-a heroically generous, pack-a-day teen with a passion for Bridezilla marathons and Mountain Dew-delivered a second child, Jonah, into the couple's arms. Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight? is Bucatinsky's hilarious and heartwarming account of his adventures as a gay dad.
ÿÿÿÿ In a distinctly captivating voice, Bucatinsky moves deftly from a reflection on losing his own father just as he's becoming one, to side-splitting stories of potty training his daughter, and finally to the ongoing competition with his same-sex spouse about who is the better parent.
ÿÿÿÿ Bucatinsky's stories capture his dawning realization that every single aspect of his life has been impacted by having children and strike the universal chords of child rearing, marriage, family, and growing older. Soul-bearing and honest, they pierce the boundaries of gender and sexual orientation while still managing to stay rooted to the heart of his story: the hunger to be a parent-and the life-changing road to becoming one.
"Once I put my kid to bed, this book made me laugh out loud late into the night. The perils of parenting as told by Dan are hilarious and heartbreaking and utterly recognizable to anyone who has a child. Brilliant." -Shonda Rhimes, creator of "Grey's Anatomy"
