We Are Family

by Susan Golombok - £9.99  Scribe Publications (2022)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781912854493 | ISBN 10: 191285449x

An insight into new ways of becoming a parent by a world-leading expert.
 
Families come in all shapes and sizes: from the nuclear two-parent two-child unit to gay families, trans families, single parents, and babies conceived using donor eggs, sperm, or embryos, or carried by a surrogate.
 
An expert in family relationships, Professor Susan Golombok has seen it all. In We Are Family, she looks at how different parenting set-ups can thrive, and asks the crucial question: what really makes a family?

"In this important and compelling book, Professor Susan Golombok gives evidence that the expansion of domestic structures represents not the downfall of family, but the expansion of it to include previously unfathomed, rich possibilities. She explains the new ways people find to reproduce and to be parents, examines how the changes evolved over the last forty years or so, and illuminates the workings of previously undocumented kinds of households. In doing so, she supplies fresh and exquisite narratives of intimacy; this is, at heart, a book about love."
(Andrew Solomon, author of Far from the Tree)
