About this title

Synopsis:

A young surrogate mother attempts to make an ordered world for her child as she wanders through the maze of trendy yuppiedom to the treacherous waters of her relations with her old love, Sinclair

From the Back Cover:

“A dear and touching and very funny novel about love.”
The Boston Globe
“A WONDERFUL TALE . . . Bird outdoes herself with this hilarious, deadpan account of a Texan artist’s attempt at surrogate motherhood. . . . A warm, wise and witty comedy.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“HILARIOUS . . . WITTY AND BITTERSWEET . . . Bird’s incisive humor, deft characterization, especially of the unpredictable, strangely enviable Trudy, and the surprising, poignant resolution make this unusual tale memorable.”
Publishers Weekly
“QUIRKY, EDGY . . . A TART AND FUNNY NOVEL.”
Los Angeles Times
“DELIGHTFUL . . . [AN] AMUSING SEND-UP OF DESIGNER PREGNANCIES.”
Glamour
Praise for the novels of Sarah Bird

The Mommy Club
“[A] fresh and funny look at motherhood . . . Enhanced by Bird’s deft touch . . . and her atmospheric depiction of San Antonio.”
Booklist

Alamo House
“More than just belly laughs. Bird’s stinging observations of human and sexual foibles provide frontline pictures so clear you can read the license plate numbers.”
Austin Chronicle

“A zany, fast-paced novel . . . The author’s snappy dialogue and pungent characterizations poke fun at everything from rodeo regulars to mass-murderer Charles Whitman, all with a dry wit.”
Chicago Tribune

The Boyfriend School
“Sarah Bird is a riot of a writer. . . . This is one of the funniest books in a long time.”
Cosmopolitan
