WinningMarriageBookMarc Solomon, national campaign director for the nonprofit Freedom to Marry, has written his first book, and an arduous one at that. But if anyone is qualified to write Winning Marriage: The Inside Story of How Same-Sex Couples Took on the Politicians and Pundits—And Won, it’s Solomon. As a 13-year veteran of the fight for marriage equality, he is in a prime seat to pen the story of the fight for gay marriage in the polls. Beginning with Massachusetts’ groundbreaking 2004 legislation to allow same-sex couples the right to marry, Solomon chronicles the literal trials and tribulations of one of the most controversial and epic political narratives of the past decade. Winning Marriage is impressive in its wide scope. Written by a political player who himself once fell right-of-center, this powerfully written undertaking tears into the fiery battle for marriage equality, with every tug and pull from its powerful adversaries including “the Catholic hierarchy, the religious right, and cynical ultraconservative political operatives.” With a forward written by Deval Patrick, governor of Massachusetts. —Lucy Doyle
