Description

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.
