Garland Stewart's early life in Mississippi was focused on one overriding goal: to get out of Mississippi, because it isn't really the best environment for a gay man. After graduating from college, he accepted a teaching job in the Middle East. That was about as far away as he could get from the South and his family. When his third and final teaching contract ended, he decided to come home to spend a couple of months in Mississippi. He was between jobs and the time off would give him the opportunity to take care of his mother after she had surgery. Once he gets home, though, chaos ensues; after finding out that one of his sisters is an addict and an alcoholic, his mother gets arrested for uttering (writing bad checks). He makes the monumental decision to stay when he discovers that his sister Lynn's five children are about to be taken from her because of her addictions. He takes responsibility for the kids and lets his mother move in to help raise them. Written in a witty, folksy style, you will fall in love with the heart-warming and crazy characters in Say Uncle!

“A poetry collection that marries wit and wisdom more brilliantly than any I know” by the Pulitzer Prize–winning former US Poet Laureate (Jane Hirshfield, author of Come, Thief). Filled with wry logic and a magical, unpredictable musicality, Kay Ryan’s poems continue to generate excitement with their frequent appearances in The New Yorker and other leading periodicals. Say Uncle, Ryan’s fifth collection, is filled with the same hidden connections, the same slyness and almost gleeful detachment that has delighted readers of her earlier books. Compact, searching, and oddly beautiful, these poems, in the words of internationally acclaimed poet and writer Dana Gioia, “take the shape of an idea clarifying itself.” “The first thing you notice about her poems is an elbow-to-the-ribs playfulness.” —San Francisco Chronicle “The short lines and quick images—almost snapshots—are elemental. Ryan puts them together, then pulls them apart, and twists them in playful fashion, as though she were an alchemist with a modern experimental attitude . . . Truly short-line, one-stanza (for the most part) wonders: full-brained poems in a largely half-brained world.” —Kirkus Reviews “Witty, charming, serious and delightful . . . her tight structures, odd rhymes and ethical judgments place her more firmly in the tradition of Marianne Moore and, latterly, Amy Clampitt. Those poets, though, wrote many kinds of poems: Ryan, in this volume, writes just one kind. It is, however, a kind worth looking out for—well crafted, understated, funny and smart.” —Publishers Weekly

What makes a family? New York Times bestselling novelist Eric Shaw Quinn asks and answers that question in this touching and hilarious romp through the trials -- literal and personal -- of a gay man making the decision of a lifetime to raise his nephew and in the process become the man he never knew he wanted to be.Michael Reily never expected to find himself raising a child. As a busy advertising executive and single gay man living in a conservative Southern town, Michael doesn't exactly have parenthood on his things-to-do list. So when Michael discovers he's been named guardian of his infant nephew, Scott, he finds he's taken on the most challenging job of his life. But he's determined to do it his way, with wit, resourcefulness and spontaneity. The moral outrage that his new position provokes galvanizes him to fight for custody of Scott, battling a close-minded, conservative senator who happens to be the child's grandfather -- and a host of would-be moral arbiters in a courtroom showdown. And when fate throws some more surprises his way, he faces getting famous, getting rich, getting his heart broken and getting all the knots out of old family ties with the same originality. In a warm and assured voice, the author celebrates the many different forms a family can take and the triumph of individualism over straitlaced conformity. Hilarious, uplifting and surprisingly wise, Say Uncle is bursting with life and love.

But the unexpected break comes just in time for him to watch his nine-month-old niece, Carly Ann, during his sister's two-week business trip.

Neither, to his chagrin, does his beautiful new neighbor: the equally busy, female-executive-type Julia Evans--though, ultimately, the two have a lot of fun trying to figure out which end to diaper and which end to feed.
