Bearing Life: Women's Writings on Childlessness Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A wall of silence surrounds the experience of women who are childless, whether by choice or by circumstance. Bearing Life is the first anthology to marshal the power of literature to break this silence. Now available in paperback, Bearing Life "widens the family circle to embrace childless women and recognize their invaluable contributions to our collective sou." (Booklist). Here, more than fifty contemporary writers, including Margaret Atwood, Sandra Cisneros, Rita Mae Brown, Grace Paley, and Amy Tan, among others, reflect in their stories, poems, and personal essays on what it means to live as women without children. Bearing Life testifies to the complexity and completeness of women's lives whatever their choices, and helps to carve out a space where true choices can be made. Rochelle Ratner is the executive editor of the American Book Review.
