Early Review for The Art of Waiting


An early, starred review from Kirkus:

“This deeply empathetic book is about more than one woman’s challenge; it’s about the whole scope of maternal urges, of how culture (and literature) treat the childless (or “childfree”), how biases against medical intervention serve to stigmatize those who need such expensive (and not always successful) assistance, and how complicated can be the decisions about whether to adopt rather than continuing to attempt to conceive, the moral dimensions of international adoption (and surrogates), the additional hurdles facing gay couples, and the seemingly arbitrary differences between states as to what procedures are covered and to what financial limit. . . . Boggs writes with considerable heart and engagement about the decisions that are so tough for so many. . . . A story well-told and deeply felt.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review
The book isn’t out until September 6, but it makes me so happy to see it in galley format (pictured above, with clover) and to hear that the writing, research, and ideas are resonating. More soon about a galley signing in May!
