Brash, Honest, Eye-Opening View of Motherhood,
By A Customer
This review is from: Making Babies: Stumbling into Motherhood (Hardcover)
Enright combines the immediacy of diary writing with a novelist's eye for details, metaphor and epiphany to create a startling portrait of pregnancy and motherhood--the pain, the risk, the doubt, the confusion, and then the joy and the fear. Not for would-be Moms who only want the good news. And it's suprisingly funny. My other favorite book about parenting is "I Sleep At Red Lights: A True Story of Life After Triplets," by Bruce Stockler, an American Dad's account of the chaos of being a primary caregiver, and an honest portrayal of the difficulties of marriage. An equally original but lesser known book that is well worth finding.
