IT IS NEVER easy to have a child, but gay parenting involves special difficulties. In this novel, gay college professor Marc Brandt arranges to have a child with a lesbian couple, anonymously. What follows, as shown in letters, e-mail, faxes, and a journal, are comedy, pain, fanaticism, loves, hatreds, accusations, plus clever and cruel deceptions, the very latest of the modern in having kids, as well as the oldest of the human.
