A must-have anthology about pregnancy from some of the foremost writers of today.
As anyone who has ever entered the terrifying and exhilarating world of pregnancy and childbirth will attest, whether as a father or mother to be, the appetite for reading on the subject is insatiable and compulsive.
'Gas And Air' is a collection of twenty-three writers, describing with honesty, humour and poignancy their unique experiences.
Peter Carey writes an extraordinarily moving account of his son's birth; Polly Samson asks provocatively, what if we don't particularly feel love at first sight for the newborn? While Emily Perkins brings alive the fears and apprehensions that often go hand in hand with the wonder of bringing a new person into the world.
Including pieces by Roddy Doyle and David Guterson, this is a must have anthology for any parent to be.
