Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To breed or not to breed? That is the question twenty-eight accomplished writers ponder in this collection of provocative, honest, soul-searching essays. Based on a popular series at Salon.com, Maybe Baby offers both frank and nuanced opinions from a wide range of viewpoints on parenting choices, both alternative and traditional.

Yes: "I've been granted access to a new plane of existence, one I could not have imagined, and would not now live without."—Peter Nichols

No: "I can sort of see that it might be nice to have children, but there are a thousand things I'd rather spend my time doing than raise them."—Michelle Goldberg

Maybe: "As we both slip into our mid-thirties, my own personal daddy dilemma has quietly taken on an urgency that I frankly didn't expect."—Larry Smith

From infertility to adoption, from ambivalence to baby lust, Maybe Baby brings together the full force of opinions about this national, but also intensely personal, debate.

Synopsis:

This revealing and thought-provoking anthology from Salon.com brings together a conflicting chorus of opinions about the difficult choice to breed or not to breed in 21st-century America.

I just read this after having my first baby- stayed up late to read, losing precious sleep- and at the end wished there was more of it. If you are at all interested in the decision to have a child, this is well written and touches on a lot of issues.
