Making Babies by Anne Enright.. In honor of our mothers, here's one that's ragingly funny and dangerously good. With all this talk of banning contraception in the air, I hope the spirited conversation will get LOUD, and very soon. Wonderful.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Part of what makes Ms. Enright so readable is that her core sweetness is lacquered over by an impacted layer of sour. She’s a grown-up version of the sarcastic, complicated kid in the back corner. The author drinks and smokes and wears black. She’s a bit of a hard case."

The New York Times

"Much of the book is astonishingly funny; the rest would break your heart.."

Colm Tóibín
