A raw and starkly honest memoir that deals with the question, can you have it all? Levy, a successful journalist for the New Yorker, a feminist in an open marriage and pregnant via artificial insemination by a friend and co-parent, believed you can. Until on a work trip to Mongolia, she loses everything. Written without self-pity, but with surprising candour and clarity this book throws up questions about how you give meaning to trauma and what happens when a planned life unravels. Essential.
