  • Politics & Prose Presents: Emma Brockes – An Excellent Choice


    Date: Thu, Jul 12
    Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The choice Brockes recounts in her engaging, honest, and funny memoir is her decision at age 37 to conceive a child on her own via assisted reproduction. Taking the reader through every step of the process, Brockes details her initial questions about the technology and the “packages” available, shares her friends’ advice on the wisdom of knowing the sperm donor, endures delays, false hopes, and the persistent “who’s the father?” then, at last, celebrates the birth of twin girls. A British journalist now living in New York, Brockes, the award-winning author of She Left Me the Gun, adds a wry English humor to all her observations, catching the quirks of both American society and its idiosyncratic health-care system.
