Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Interviews with 1000 men and women who have formed ``alternative'' family units reveal that many deliberately chose their unorthodox arrangements and, in addition to facing problems associated with traditional marriage, often must deal with social disapproval. ``Whitney is a commendable fact-finder, remaining objective in presenting controversial material,'' said PW. (Apr.)
Library Journal
``Dedicated to men and women who wrestle with tradition, invent new options, take risks and live creatively,'' Whitney's book will be of aid and interest to those men and women who defy the strictures of approved societal relationships. Whitney explores a number of unique, loving relationships, which may include children--not an option for gay men at one time. That is now changing, and Whitney looks at how the disclosure of homosexuality affects relationships between gay dads and kids. Further, as she points out, some gay men realize that though they are more sexually attracted to men, their primary emotional relationships are with women--a stance once thought of as exploitation or a comfortable front. It is this struggle between the physical and emotional that Whitney emphasizes. Surveying more than 1000 people, she comes to no grand conclusions yet finds that there are many who must create new ways to live and love. A subject of wide interest. Highly recommended.-- Kevin M. Roddy, Oakland P.L., Cal.
