Reviews

Galchen does something more profound than tackle motherhood; she utterly reinvents and reanimates the subject.--Christopher Bollen
Witty and delightfully intelligent.--Carolyn Kellogg
A quietly revolutionary little book.
Everything one could possibly need is dispensed via dense, tiny, mysterious pellets--a fortified shot of literary enrichment we didn't even know we needed, but that now feels vital and enthralling.
A highly original book: I adore Galchen's quiet and bravery. I am confident that many mothers (and other sleepless readers) will pick up this book and feel that they have found an unexpectedly intimate friend.
Not your mother's motherhood lit. Brief, gemlike reflections on adjusting to life under the rule of a baby daughter (called 'the puma'): it's a book that will ring both familiar and strange.
