Summary
  • "A brilliant exploration of the natural, medical, psychological, and political facets of fertility"--Back cover
  • Boggs recounts her realization that she might never be able to conceive. She searches the apparently fertile world around her for signs that she is not alone, and explores other aspects of fertility and infertility from depictions in films and literature to the financial and legal complications of alternative means of family making. The result is an expansive contemplation of fertility, choice, and the many possible roads to making a life and making a family
Summary
The author describes her struggle to conceive a child and in the process explores the natural, medical, psychological and political facets of fertility
