Meaghan O'Connell's memoir is funny, raw, and engrossing, and her narration makes her conversational writing sound even more intimate and personal. O'Connell was recently engaged, living in Brooklyn, and hard at work building her writing career when she got pregnant. The unplanned and uncomfortable pregnancy was followed by a traumatic birth. The struggles that followed--exhaustion, lack of sex drive, complicated feelings about parenthood and work, and more--will be familiar to new parents everywhere. Her voice has a hint of vocal fry--a generational marker that makes it sound especially authentic and familiar. Listening to this book is like sitting down with a smart, wry friend.
