When Dan wrote this, a gay male couple adopting a baby (with relative ease and almost no wait -- pure fate) was like earning your PhD in Homo Studies. I was in awe of them then, and I'm in awe now (still -- D.J.'s all grows up). Great, funny book abo ...more

There's not much left to say when a book has this many reviews and a Pulitzer Prize. I liked it fine, even though I'm curious why seven to eight years passed between his research and the book's publication.

Diligently reported, thoughtful and eye-opening. I wish there were more nonfiction books like these, which combine sharp reporting and personal perspective/viewpoint and are in it for the long haul, not just a fly-by (or in this case, a drive-by).

"Yikes. This was really closer to one star, but I've noticed that other reviewers who give this book less-than-stellar ratings get harrassed, so I'm...hedging my review a tiny bit.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys memoirs and recent American history. Simply beautiful -- a memoir of sorts, about place and how we occupy it. This is the kind of book some of your older relatives allege they're writing, or going to ...more

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly by Jean-Dominique Bauby

Read this as prep work for writing a Washington Post profile on Julian Schnabel, who directed the 2007 film. Still more haunting than inspiring -- what could be more frightening than being locked inside your own body?
