A candid, ultimately buoyant, debut story collection about the realities of the “baby years,” whether you’re having one or not. The women in Polly Rosenwaike’s “Look How Happy I’m Making You” want to be mothers or aren’t sure they want to be mothers or — having recently given birth — are overwhelmed by what they’ve wrought.
Polly Rosenwaike has published stories, essays, and reviews in The O. Henry Prize Stories 2013, The New York Times Book Review, Glimmer Train, New England Review, The Millions, and the San Francisco Chronicle. The fiction editor for Michigan Quarterly Review, she lives in Ann Arbor with the poet Cody Walker and their two daughters.
