This engaging audiobook is about the evolution of the institution of marriage, seen through the prism of the forty-year fight to legalize gay marriage. Author and narrator Matthew Baume chronicles that fight with seemingly relentless research, thoughtful observations, and colorful stories about the pioneers and players in the gay marriage movement. His resonant reading communicates a firm grasp of his topic and perspective. But his pacing sounds quick not just in absolute terms but in terms of what's natural for him. His conversational tone remains prominent, but many listeners will wonder why he seems to be rushing his otherwise appealing performance. For advocates of human rights and students of how life partnerships intersect with the law, this is illuminating listening about an essential slice of our nation's cultural history.
