"Much of the book is astonishingly funny; the rest would break your heat." —Colm T ib nAnne Enright was married for eighteen years before she and her husband, a playwright, started having children. Already a confident, successful novelist, Enright continued to work after each of her two children was born; while each baby slept during those first two years of life, Enright wrote, in dispatches, about the mess, the glory, and the raw shock of motherhood. Here, unfiltered and irreverent, are Enright's keen reactions to the pains of pregnancy, breast milk ("women leak so much"), four a.m. feedings, and the constant cries of an infant. Supremely observant and endlessly quizzical, Enright has "pulled off that rarest of tricks: writing brilliantly about happiness" (London Sunday Times). Making Babies beautifully captures just what it's like for a workingwoman to become a mother for the first time—a wry and touching look at middle-aged motherhood from one of our generation's most talented writers.
