Father and Child are Doing Well
In eight unforgettable short stories, Pauline Dreyfus enchants her reader with anecdotes about parenthood and childbirth. Contrary to other books that present only the rosy side of parenthood, Dreyfus’ stories are filled with realistic characters whose emotions vary from awe to anguish. From the father fiercely dedicated to protecting his newborn on the drive home from the hospital, to the woman overcome by despair after her failure to conceive, to the mother willing to risk her life for a fourth child, Dreyfus shows parenthood in all its joy and intensity. This is a magical little book that will amuse, amaze and reassure anyone who already is or is thinking of becoming a parent.
