Overview

It would be hard to imagine parents more perfect than Claire and Theo. In a rambling apartment overlooking Central Park West, they raise their son Willy with enthusiasm, encouragement, and what might now be called unconditional love. It might also be called unconventional love, for Claire and Theo are both women; they are Willy's mothers. As a young boy, Willy knows only the warm, supportive, slightly offbeat world of Claire, a respected photographer, and Theo, a successful caterer. Together they fill Willy's life with laughter, fun, and an extended circle of friends and relatives. Sunday dinners at Theo's table are legendary, trips to Uncle Peter's Long Island farm are any boy's delight, and visits to Uncle Baxter and Aunt Jessica's Greenwich Village brownstone are an exotic adventure. But Willy soon learns of another world, one in which his mothers are viewed with hatred and mistrust. When that world intrudes and forces Claire and Theo to reexamine their lives and their relationship, Willy is the only person who can prove to them and to the courts that "normal" is in the eye of the beholder, and that life with his mothers is the best life a boy could have.
