About THE FAMILY WAY by Christopher DiRaddo:
The year Paul turns forty, his friends Wendy and Eve ask him to help them get pregnant. Nothing about the process feels natural to him. But for a gay man of a certain age, making a family still means finding your own way through a world with few ready answers. The eighteen-month journey reveals many insights about Paul’s past and present, from his strained relationship to his father, his overprotective relationship with his partner Michael, and the many friends around him whom he considers his family.
Christopher DiRaddo lives in Montreal where he is the founder and host of the Violet Hour LGBTQ reading series. He is also the author of THE GEOGRAPHY OF PLUTO.
