9781770095762: Just Keep Breathing: South African Birth Stories

Stunningly diverse and predominantly literary, this collection of birth stories explores one of the most commonplace yet profound of human experiences. By turns harrowing, hilarious, shocking, brave, and deeply poignant, these 28 accounts include not only the remarkable stories of women, including a rural midwife, a Rwandan refugee and a surrogate mother, but also contributions by men, who write movingly from the margins.

Book Description Jacana Media (Pty) Ltd, South Africa, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Just keep breathing brings a stunningly diverse collection of South African birth stories to print. The collection is part of a new wave of South African non-fiction writing and marks a new phase in the maturing of our democracy.
