Great read for all

I loved reading this!! Even though its written by a lesbian this book is not "for" lesbians contemplating insemination. Its hilarious and I couldn't put it down. VERY well written story about one couple's journey to motherhood using donor sperm.

Very great book!

I had this book on my shelf for a month before opening it - why did I wait so long? I agree with the other reviewers. This is a funny, moving, and yes, heartfelt book. Harlyn Aizley's voice is one I will never forget. Very poetic and humorous take on two of life's biggest and hardest adventures.

moving and wonderful

It's hard to imagine laughing about cancer and crying about sperm, but that's what I did while reading Buying Dad. Harlyn Aizley's insights and sharp wit made reading about two really difficult issues - cancer and infertility - a joy and a learning experience. A great book to pass on to a friend thinking of becoming a mom or to someone who is helping a loved one face cancer.


From the moment I first picked up Buying Dad I was hooked and could not put it down. Harlyn Aizley takes two of life's biggest occasions - deciding to have a baby and watching your mother battle cancer - and dares to embrace them with humor, wit, and deep emotion. As a straight woman who also lost her mother near to when her first child was born, I can only say this book allowed me the opportunity to both cry and laugh out loud about a very difficult time in my life. Harlyn Aizley is the kind of writer you want to take out to dinner and chat with when the book is done.


At last here is a FUNNY and smart book about life, loss, and becoming a parent that includes a gay woman's perspective but is not a "gay book." Perfect for any woman who stays up all night wondering whether or not she wants to become a mommy. A great read!
