Product Description


HER GIANT OCTOPUS MOMENT is, to put it at its simplest, an "issue" novel - but how well she does it . . . readable, poignant, the novel demonstrates that there are no easy answers or pat formulas, and the author's skill is to woo the reader into empathising with conflicting viewpoints. (The Sunday Times)

'Thought-provoking' ***** (Woman's Own)

This is both a comic and poignant read told via quirky prose, and is impossible to put down (Image)

The sympathetic understanding of her characters, the even-handed exposition of different types of mothering and the beauty of her crystal-clear prose all come together to make this a must read. (Red)

Sweet and sad and funny and thought-provoking (U magazine)

A poignant, at times funny, at times saddening book about morals and motherhood (Tatler Ireland)

HER GIANT OCTOPUS MOMENT is the brilliant new novel from Kay Langdale exploring the morality and legality of modern parenting and the surrogate . . . impressively plausible and realistic . . . truly heartbreaking and yet life-affirming at the same time. A thoroughly enjoyable and light-hearted, engaging read. (welovethisbook.com)

This distressing topic has been adapted by the author into a gripping, heart-rendering story. The characters are portrayed skilfully, especially Scout, who is a wonderful child . . . I couldn't wait to find out the ending; all too soon it came. An extremely exciting and emotional read that kept me gripped. (New Books)

Book Description

Funny and poignant exploration of motherhood and surrogacy
