About this product
- DescriptionDeborah Garrison's The Second Child is a book of poems about family in a world both more exciting and more frightening than ever before. It explores many facets of motherhood - ambivalence, trepidation and joy - coming to terms with the seismic shift in her outlook and in the world around her. She confronts her post-9/11 fears as she commutes daily into New York City, continuing to seek passion in her marriage and wrestling with her feelings about faith and the mysterious gift of happiness. Her critically acclaimed first collection, A Working Girl Can't Win chronicled the progress and predicaments of a young career woman. This new book shows her moving into ather stage of adulthood, starting a family and saying goodbye to a more carefree self. Sometimes sensual, sometimes succinct, always candid, The Second Child is a meditation on the extraordinariness resident in the everyday - nursing babies, missing the past, kwing when to lead a child and kwing when to let go. With a voice sound and wise, Deborah Garrison examines a life fully lived.
