 (Amber Davis Tourlentes/W.W. Norton & Co.)

When Alysia Abbott was two years old, her mother died in a car crash and her father, a poet and gay rights activist, moved her to San Francisco. Abbot's book "Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father" explores her experiences growing up with an openly gay parent during the tumultuous 1970s in San Francisco. It's a world of artists, activists, drag queens, drugs and eventually, AIDS.

Guests:

Alysia Abbott, journalist and author of "Fairyland: A Memoir of my Father"
