Making Babies : Stumbling into Motherhood Paperback
by Anne Enright
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 by towncalledmalice
Spot on!! Bin all the yummy mummy guides and sleep nazi schedules; this one tells it like it is. I LOVED the description of mum with buggy and the negativity this seems to unleash from some people who feel babies shouldn't be allowed out.
