Guarding the Moon: A Mother's First Year

Guarding the Moon: A Mother's First Year Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Acclaimed author Francesca Lia Block's meditation on the anxieties and elations of her first year as a mother are lovingly told in this treasure of a book. Block writes with raw and tender emotion about the joys and fears in her new life with her Silky-Milky, Girly-Swirl Moon Baby. As she watches her daughter grow and adjust to the world, the author reflects on how her own body and belief system have changed forever through the miracle of birth and parenting. With beautifully woven lyrical writing, Block reveals with immense grace and passion all the gifts her child has given her.

This is a love story — from mother to daughter — that reminds us that the deepest kind of love makes us vulnerable, joyous, triumphant, and new.

Review:

"This slight volume belies the depth of emotion conveyed within....[A] lyrical, poetic vision....Block illuminates the myriad ways in which her child has transformed her vision of the world, in language that sings." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[I]ncredibly intimate and intensely spiritual. It is a unique contribution to parenting books and an important one. Block...shares her story in such a moving way that makes it highly readable and recommendable." Book Reporter

Review:

"An endless sequence of paragraphs, many of which stand alone as prose poems, this moving account ultimately reveals the transformation of not just Block the woman but also Block the writer, whose inspiration now comes from being a mother." Library Journal

The author of the award-winning Weetzie Bat books and the bestselling Dangerous Angels offers a passionate and lyrical celebration of her daughter's first year.
