9780099437628: Making Babies: Stumbling into Motherhood

Anne Enright, one of Ireland's most remarkable writers, has just had two babies: a girl and a boy. Making Babies, is the intimate, engaging, and very funny record of the journey from early pregnancy to age two. Written in dispatches, typed with a sleeping baby in the room, it has the rush of good news - full of the mess, the glory, and the raw shock of it all. An antidote to the high-minded, polemical 'How-to' baby manuals, Making Babies also bears a visceral and dreamlike witness to the first years of parenthood. Anne Enright wrote the truth of it as it happened, because, for these months and years, it is impossible for a woman to lie.

Review:

"Fizzingly entertaining. Reading it is like having a conversation with your funniest friend. Enright has pulled off that rarest of tricks: writing brilliantly about happiness" ( Sunday Times)

" Making Babies is an absolute joy, the perfect, intelligent antidote to poisonous books on the subject" (India Knight)

"An unadulterated delight...suffused with a sense of love and very, very funny" (Maggie O'Farrell Daily Telegraph)

"Gasp-making, jaw-dropping and eloquently astounding" ( Irish Indepedent)

"Enright is such an original and witty writer. Her tone is utterly unsentimental and kept reducing me to tears" ( Zoe Heller)

From the Publisher:

The Sunday Times and Irish Top Ten Bestselling book about motherhood
