Dear A.H. Faiz,

I’d love for you to introduce me to some straight, perfect kids, please. My son is straight, true (not his fault, he was born that way), but fairly far from perfect. My daughter identifies as queer, although she’s with a man right now. A wonderful child, but again, not perfect. I mean, I do think they’re perfect — when they’re asleep.

I enjoyed your book review. So much, in fact, I’m gonna read the book. As far as dark humor goes, my husband says this with a thick Russian accent, a la Stalin, “Dark humor is like food. Not everybody gets it.”
