The Unfamiliar : A Queer Motherhood Memoir, Hardback Book

The Unfamiliar : A Queer Motherhood Memoir Hardback



An unconventional, unexpectedly funny, brutally honest memoir about infertility, pregnancy and motherhood'You and your partner want a baby.

But your two bodies can't make a baby together.' If you want a baby but your body says otherwise - If you don't know the polite way to say thank you for the sperm - If you're waiting for the sound of a brand-new heartbeat - If you know it takes a village to raise a baby but have no idea who should be doing what -If you're lurching between bliss and bewilderment - If you don't fit the shape of what you've been told a mother should be - Reach for The Unfamiliar and don't let go. Moving and immersive, and written with wisdom, disarming humour and raw honesty, The Unfamiliar casts a fresh eye on motherhood and challenges our assumptions about pregnancy, gender roles, queer identity and what it means to be a parent. 'Cold, hard, raw writing that somehow sets your heart on fire' LAURA DOCKRILL'Fierce, honest, beautifully written...
