|Gerrold, David||The Martian Child||Fiction||A Novel About A Single Father Adopting A Son. The biggest question is why the story is presented in fictional form. As Gerrold explicitly states, it is based on reality, and no point seems to be served in manufacturing details, except, perhaps, that it allows Gerrold to focus on the thesis that lavish applications of love, patience and understanding (along with a bit of medication) can overcome any child's difficulties and create a marvelous father-son relationship and a successful adoptive process. Because it doesn't thoroughly address such serious potential problems as Dennis's propensity for petty theft and violence, the resulting story is less than believable.|

Minnie Goetze is a horny drinking/drugging 15 year old in 1970s San Francisco. She is loosely based on the author. The book is interesting, but also a bit repulsive as reading teen-age angst is always a bit much. I read about the first 50 pages before I had to return it.
