Pressestimmen

Praise for AMERICAN SAVAGE:

“America’s most in-your-face sex columnist and gay-rights activist comes out swinging in these pugnacious, hilarious essays…Underneath Savage’s scabrous, bomb-throwing exterior beats the heart of a softie.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review

"An extraordinarily personal, deeply felt book about traditional marriage, authentic and healthy religion and a traditional sex life."
-The Washington Post

"Savage's essays on fatherhood, cheating, and the subset of Americans, in American Savage, who still think sexuality is a choice are powerful messages for both the head and the heart." - Entertainment Weekly

"Dan Savage is the most prominent activist for gay rights in America....many of his proponents forget just how good of a writer he is.  American Savage is everything a longtime reader of Savage would expect: a series of hilarious, often touching, essays that deal with sexuality, monogamy, religion, gun rights, and Savage’s family." –The A.V. Club

“Savage writes conversationally and wonderfully. Although some might be put off at first by his strong opinions, most readers will ultimately find him engaging. Recommended for general readers who enjoy the cutting edge essay format.” -Library Journal

“At turns serious and humorous, this multifaceted collection of essays will entertain both longtime Savage fans and new readers.” –Kirkus

“[Savage] takes on gun control, Obamacare, sex education in public schools, and gay marriage, among other hot-button topics. His provocative points are sharply made… Fans of Savage’s in-your-face rhetoric are sure to rally around his liberal pulpit.” -Booklist

“Dan Savage is a gay superhero… marvelously discursive and footnote-laden collection of new essays… American Savage will most likely preach to the choir, but its polemics are still beautiful, verbal slap-downs of sanctimonious bigotry.” –Time Out New York

American Savage is at once deliberately outrageous and seriously thoughtful.” - The Seattle Post-Intelligencer

 “An entertaining and thought-provoking collection of short-winded essays…Savage has the ability to smooth over his rant’s foul-mouthed edges with a refreshing self-deprecation and, yes, a good old-fashioned Midwestern kindness.”  - The Minneapolis Star Tribune

"American Savage: Insights, Slights and Fights on Faith, Sex, Love and Politics comes roaring into bookstores with such high potential that one can’t help expecting it to fail. But this book, with all its wisdom, ideas and ideals, does exactly the opposite - it supersedes all his previous work.” –The Edge

I guess I have to give this a reasonable review in recognition of Savage's importance in contemporary debates around sexuality and my underlying sympathy with much of what he says. Not all however: he is unremittingly nativist on sexual orientation, has little real psychological insight into kink, and oversimplifies bisexuality. These are quite considerable failings for someone in his position, but at the same time he takes on the US right-wing establishment with such heroic force and humor that you have to forgive him. He is also too journalistic and black and white in his views, rarely pausing to look at the world from others' perspectives. it's entertaining fr a while, but ultimately it gets tedious and you are left wishing for a bit more nuance. He is, however, such a hero for gay kids and non-monogamists that I recommend to buy his book merely as a gesture of support. I read in it hardly anything I had not heard several times in the podcast, but it may be better as a gift for someone who isn't likely to listen to the podcast, and of course it's a more condensed introduction to his thought.

Dan Savage pulls no punches. And that's good, because the punches he delivers are right in the smacker of the people who deserve them.

If you get your bloomers in a twist over a series of F-bombs, then you will probably miss the gravity and seriousness of Savage's message and think this book is just trash. I encourage you, however, to steel yourself for the abrasive - and, let's face it, folks, quotidian - vocabulary and absorb the important and potentially salubrious commentary he unloads in this love letter to America.

ethical insights on sex and life 28. Mai 2013
Von Lindie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I am a lover of fiction. Oh, sure, I read a lot of non-fiction -- news, blogs, internet columns -- but when I think of reading for pleasure,it is always fiction. So I bought Dan Savage's book out of impulse. I like his columns, SLOG, his podcasts, his work on behalf of gay kids and my gay friends -- so why not give him a little paid thank you for all of the free stuff I've gotten from him over the years?

So the book arrived on my Kindle app and I thought I'd read one essay -- like maybe one a day? Who knew I'd gobble it down like -- well -- my favorite novels? Savage is an amazing writer -- precise in his thought process, graceful in his expression, amusing, humane, and frequently (as Mike Huckabee says) "rude, vile, and angry." The victims of his needle wit, of course, absolutely deserve it, having attacked vilely and viciously his life, his family, his friends, and those in this world who just want to be allowed to love as their beings demand. Dan's work is sometimes angry, but more often he shows humor, love and a keen understanding of human nature.

So I recommend this book to those who appreciate good writing as well as to those who enjoy insight into other people's lives (including their sex lives!), or who just appreciate seeing the bigots of this world skewered as they well deserve with a measured wit and deadly logic.

A greatest hits album 23. Juni 2013
Von T.J. Sullivan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a fan. Let's just put that out there. Never miss a podcast, and I admire the guy greatly. But, the book didn't offer anything to a regular Savage consumer that we don't get every time we tune in. This is a greatest hits album meant to cash in on the high profile of the recent years. As I was reading it, I was thinking that it would be great for those who have experienced Savage at a distance. Those of us who have been viewing close up for a while aren't going to find anything new here. Honestly, I long for something that matches the personal brilliance of the early books, "The Kid" and "The Commitment." When Dan is talking about his life and making it personal, the authenticity is inspiring. He does self-deprecation so well (thank you, Catholic upbringing). You see shades of that in this book when he talks about his mother's death and in other chapters with glimpses into his family life and relationship. But, that great stuff gets drowned in the political discourse in this book. And while I am always in Dan's corner when he talks politics, I guess I look for something more when he's writing a book. That's what makes this just a "good" for me and not something that I'll be raving about to others. The brand of "Dan Savage" is driving the bus right now, and hey, who can blame him? I miss the authentic writer, though. It's what the core is made of, and I bet it will return later when the heat dies down.

Eloquent and moving book about sexuality, religion, and politics 29. Mai 2013
Von Joan Price - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I'm a Dan Savage geek. I was prepared to like Dan's new book. I had no idea that I would love it, highlight it, bookmark it, rave about it. I had no idea that Dan could write so eloquently, and from the heart. Dan's personal stories are moving, especially when he writes about his mother's death, his husband, or his son. Each time he speaks from his heart with a story from his own life, it is to illustrate or lead us to an important point.

American Savage is a book about sex, love, and marriage in our contemporary culture and how politics, religion, and sexuality get mixed together -- and badly mixed up. I recommend it to everyone, straight or gay, who cares about how confused our culture is about sexuality and religion and politics. Please read this book and share it with people in your life who agree with you -- and those who don't.

Love me some Dan Savage! 31. Mai 2013
Von Teri Tipton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
(Says the straight 40 something woman)

If you're a fan of Savage Love, this book is a no-brainer. It encompasses Dan's wit and logic (and colorful turn of phrase) in a manner that makes you feel like you're sitting in a bar with him discussing life. It's not just about "Teh Gay", it's also about sex education and strengthening the family (yes, every family, even "opposite sex" ones). There's a heartbreaking chapter on the death of his mother, and his proudest moments as a parent, and his strong love of his spouse. And frankly, there is a very emotional chapter on his struggle with leaving his Catholicism behind.....as an ex-Catholic, I can understand the ambiguity.

Thank you Dan, you've created a topical tome on life in America in the 21st Century. You've been on the front lines of the culture wars for a few years now, and should e proud of your accomplishments and voice.

Buy the book if you enjoy reading about the culture wars. Don't buy it if you are a Biblical literalist. I guarantee you will NOT like it.

A Patriot for the Left! 22. Dezember 2013
Von James D. Held - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I have encountered Dan Savage twice on Bill Maher's HBO show--a great wit with a take-no-prisoners approach to bursting the bubbles of hysterical right wing-nuts! This collection of essays--likely some of his columns--is a very forthright and honest exploration of all kinds of things, not just sexual. My favorite, maybe, is the chapter on the accusation that Pres. Obama is a socialist, and then Dan gets into showing us how following the gospel instructions on feeding the hungry, healing the sick, and caring for the poor and aged...that's real socialism, as is Medicare, gov't subsidized...anything, etc. Get it!
