INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

A moving, hopeful, and refreshingly candid memoir by the husband of former Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg about growing up gay in his small Midwestern town, his relationship with Pete, and his hope for America's future.

Throughout the past year, teacher Chasten Glezman Buttigieg has emerged on the national stage, having left his classroom in South Bend, Indiana, to travel cross-country in support of his husband, former mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Pete's groundbreaking presidential campaign. Through Chasten's joyful, witty social media posts, the public gained a behind-the-scenes look at his life with Pete on the trail-moments that might have ranged from the mundane to the surprising, but that were always heartfelt.

Chasten has overcome a multitude of obstacles to get here. In this moving, uplifting memoir, he recounts his journey to finding acceptance as a gay man. He recalls his upbringing in rural Michigan, where he knew he was different, where indeed he felt different from his father and brothers. He recounts his coming out and how he's healed from revealing his secret to his family, friends, community, and the world. And he tells the story of meeting his boyfriend, whom he would marry and who would eventually become a major Democratic leader.

With unflinching honesty, unflappable courage, and great warmth, Chasten Buttigieg relays his experience of growing up in America and embracing his true self, while inspiring others to do the same.

    This (audio) book was impossible to turn off! Chasten’s humor and honesty painted a picture of a real person whose life took a very interesting and fortunate turn...and I don’t mean fortunate only for him. The world is a better place with the beginning of his story told. I’m looking forward to hearing more great things of these two in the coming years! And, now I’m going to read Peter’s book.

    Funny and heartfelt. Throughly enjoyable. I didn’t knew much about Pete before this and I certainly had no idea who Chasten was, so this was a very pleasant surprise.
  • (3/5)
    Chasten gives interesting insights into his past and present life as the husband of former presidential canditate Pete Buttigieg. One thing I didn't quite like is that events are not always narrated in a chronological order, bouncing back and forth through key moments of his life. Also, a few points get reiterated too many times, making it a bit boring to follow.
