the Sunday Times bestselling memoir of stumbling into motherhood

Summary

A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

'An unadulterated delight...suffused with a sense of love and very, very funny' Maggie O'Farrell


It's 2004 and 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.
