Cusk, a best-selling novelist, is acclaimed for her humorous works. Her account of a year of modern motherhood becomes many stories: a farewell to freedom, sleep and time; a lesson in humility and hard work; a journey to the roots of love; and most of all a sentimental education in babies, books, toddler groups, bad advice, crying, breastfeeding, and never being alone.

"Canadian-born Rachel Cusk describes the experience of being a first-time mother frankly, making no secret of the trials and constraints of adjusting to life with an infant. Gerri Halligan's serious reading captures the essence of Cusk's feelings of isolation and loss after the birth while at the same time reflecting the story of mother and baby as the singular event that it was. Cusk details the changes and challenges in her life with little sentimentality, but still conveys her love and awe for her child. Halligan's solid reading communicates these emotions. Not for the fainthearted, but perfect for any new mother struggling with the same issues. H.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
