Official Recommendations

This week, Kris recommends the Neil Patrick Harris show Uncoupled (Netflix), which follows Neil’s character Michael after he is dumped by his partner on his 50th birthday and his subsequent journey into middle-aged queer dating. Kris loved the focus on queer adults and the particular challenges and opportunities that come with that experience.

Tara doesn’t usually gush, but… who are we kidding? She totally does. And this week, she’s gushing about Ann McMan’s Dead Letters From Paradise. It’s a historical mystery about a young woman managing the dead letter office Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and how her experiences there widen her world and connect her to the community around her. Tara tentatively describes this as Ann McMan’s best book. Listen to the review then go and pick this up!
