Before there was "Will and Grace" there was George and Nina. George is a gay kindergarten teacher who shares an apartment in Brooklyn with Nina, a straight psychologist. When Nina announces she's pregnant it causes these two platonic lovers to question where their relationship is going and if it can handle the stress of their unconventional family. Charming, sweet, and funny. This book was made into a movie starring Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd, although I prefer the book to the film version.

Stephen McCauley crafts a sweet and impossible pas de deux between two characters, George and Nina, with sufficient warts and foibles to be believable. He surrounds them with a wry and witty cast of supporting characters and melds it all with charming, infectious, Friends-like dialogue (predating Friends by about 10 years). It's interesting that Jennifer Aniston went on to portray Nina in the movie version of the book.
