And what are the real "family values" that help keep parents and children whole and healthy? In A Song for Lost Angels, San Francisco writer Kevin Fisher-Paulson answers these questions by telling the the intimate history of a family of two men plus triplets that came together suddenly one day, and thrived for a year before being torn apart by groundless prejudice. And he tells this riveting story with grace, dignity, and a surprisingly generous dose of humor. "After a week of not sleeping, Papa and I got into the routine of baby care: feed the baby, burp the baby, change the baby, put the baby to bed, wash baby's clothes, rinse out baby's bottle, and make more formula, just about in time to start feeding the baby.

The witty gay couple with lots of time for canapes and cocktails had quickly turned into two sleep-deprived, middle-aged men." Fearless Books is proud to announce advance sales for a compelling memoir that takes the discussion of gay marriage in America to the next level, where the rights and struggles of gay-parented families can be openly recognized.

On that score, Kevin's book is about a great many potential readers: gay spouses, anyone who has dealt with the foster/adoption system, anyone who has confronted overt discrimination, parents of every description, and even those who live in thrall to their dogs.""...
