CAROLE MASO is the author of seven books including Ghost Dance and Break Every Rule. She is a professor of English at Brown University.
“In lush, elliptical language, Maso charts her first experience with pregnancy and new motherhood in a journal that reads like prose poetry, couching the mysterious experience in surprising forms, syntaxes and imagery.” —Publishers Weekly
“Maso’s experiences during the pregnancy and birth of her daughter, Rose, are the focus of this unique book—a combination of prose and poetry written in journal form… Using her own anxieties, anticipation, and love, she has written an important examination of one of the most important passages of a woman’s life.” —Library Journal
