When you are a fortysomething gay New Yorker with a stressful job as a film agent, a fruity assortment of friends and the odd obsessive-compulsive tendency, you may not see yourself as an ideal parent. However, when Ed's sister begs him to take in her daughter - the beautiful, capricious and downright difficult Tiffany - Ed rashly agrees. Soon, his life has turned upside down as he tries to deal with an exasperating but loving teenager while learning to be a parent himself. Their relationship develops from culture shock on both sides to an affectionate tolerance of each other's idiosyncrasies and a shared passion for really bad films. Moving, stylish and appealing, this is a book about growing up, about families, about parenting and about having no idea what to do next.
