9781304005533: Night Sweats: An Unexpected Pregnancy

Laura Crossett was thirty-five years old, one month into a relationship, and six months into a new job when she sat in a staff bathroom and looked at a stick that told her something she already suspected. Almost half the pregnancies that occur in the United States each year are unplanned. Some of them happen to married women, some to unmarried; some occur due to failure to use contraception; some due to contraceptive failure. Some happen to women who hope one day to have children; some to women who never wanted children at all. In a political climate that polarizes around issues of sexuality and choice and a popular culture that glamorizes pregnancy and fetishizes motherhood, we rarely hear the stories of women who did not seek to become pregnant. Night Sweats is one of them.

From Booklist:

This lucid chronicle of a single woman’s unexpected pregnancy and the flurry of urgent, troubling, and profound questions it raised began as a private blog, Crossett explains, hence its immediacy and candor. She is 35 when this takes place, an Iowa librarian with a busy job who is just about to buy a house. She has to decide whether to terminate this surprise pregnancy or have the baby. Crossett is pithy, smart, funny, and discerning. We learn that both her grandmother and her mother became single parents, each having married an alcoholic, and that her father committed suicide when she was five and a half. Crossett attests to her immersion in radical politics, her unshakable pro-choice stance, and her vital religious faith. As she records her body’s rapid metamorphosis and her raging inner debate, she reminds us that political perspectives are broad and abstract, while personal decisions, enmeshed in the particulars of individual lives, are complicated and very real. A rock-steady writer in the mode of Anne Lamott, Crossett is cogent and fair, frank and compelling, and readers will hope fervently that she continues to share her story and her insights in future books. --Donna Seaman
