FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

A PASSIONATE STRUGGLE OVER THEIR CHILD…
Re-released book shows the letters, faxes, and e-mails of two couples, one gay male and one lesbian, as they encounter both victories and heartbreak in their determination to have a child together

San Francisco, CA – May 7, 2009 -- Ahead of its time, this book anticipated the rise in alternative ways for otherwise childless people to have children. Now it is back, more relevant than ever. There are few things people get more passionate about than their children. Daniel Curzon brings you a roller-coaster ride of emotions as he details the different personalities caught up in a dramatic scenario partly of their own making but even more of other people’s making.

Only the Good Parts tells the heartfelt story of Marc Brandt, a gay college professor who wants to have a biological child of his own, and so, through a mid-wife, he provides his semen to a lesbian couple, Sandra and Kayo. The pregnancy is the easy part. What rights does Marc have as the father? What fears do the mothers have? What if all parties are not on board? What drastic measures do most parents resort to?

Author Curzon, in not just your everyday novel, presents his masterpiece in a fast-paced read full of a multitude of colliding emotions, a wonderful blast of maternal and paternal love, accusations of abuse, and necessary lies.
