The Unfamiliar: A Queer Motherhood Memoir

by Kirsty Logan - £16.99  Little, Brown Book Group (2023)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9780349016573 | ISBN 10: 0349016577

An unconventional, unexpectedly funny, brutally honest memoir about infertility, pregnancy and motherhood.
 
‘You and your partner want a baby. But your two bodies can’t make a baby together.’
 
If you want a baby but your body says otherwise –
If you don’t know the polite way to say thank you for the sperm –
If you’re waiting for the sound of a brand-new heartbeat –
If you know it takes a village to raise a baby but have no idea who should be doing what –
If you’re lurching between bliss and bewilderment –
If you don’t fit the shape of what you’ve been told a mother should be –
 
Reach for The Unfamiliar and don’t let go.
 
Moving and immersive, and written with wisdom, disarming humour and raw honesty, The Unfamiliar casts a fresh eye on motherhood and challenges our assumptions about pregnancy, gender roles, queer identity and what it means to be a parent.
