Baby Love: Choosing Motherhood After a Lifetime of Ambivalence


Baby Love: Choosing Motherhood After a Lifetime of Ambivalence Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the international bestselling author of Black, White, and Jewish comes a "wonderfully insightful" (Associated Press) book that's destined to become a motherhood classic. Now in trade.

Like many women her age, thirty-four-year-old Rebecca Walker was brought up to be skeptical of motherhood. As an adult she longed for a baby but feared losing her independence. In this very smart memoir, Walker explores some of the larger sociological trends of her generation while delivering her own story about the emotional and intellectual transformation that led her to motherhood.

Her work has appeared in many anthologies and publications; in addition to the international bestseller Black, White, and Jewish, her books include the anthologies To Be Real: Telling the Truth and Changing the Face of Feminism and What Makes a Man: 22 Writers Imagine the Future.
