A sharp alternative guide from the literary trenches.
This thoughtful, vital examination of new parenthood is a sharp alternative guide from the literary trenches. […] Through contributors that include columnists, poets, memoirists, and others, Oh, Baby! distinguishes itself with consistently smart writing. Personal narratives build on each other and speak to the sheer difficulty of child rearing without losing oneself in the process. This is the welcome kind of anthology that sugarcoats nothing: love for a child amplifies, but it also eviscerates.
