"Achingly wise . . . Admirers of Marilynne Robinson will find themselves very much at home in this book." —Wall Street Journal

Jessica Speight, an anthropologist in 1960s London, is at the beginning of a promising academic career when an affair leaves her a single mother. Anna is delightful—a pure gold baby. But as it becomes clear that Anna is not a normal child, the book circles questions of responsibility, potential, even age, with Margaret Drabble’s characteristic intelligence and wit. Told from the point of view of Jess's fellow mothers, The Pure Gold Baby is a movingly intimate look at the unexpected transformations at the heart of motherhood.

From the Back Cover:

“An unexpected gift from a great author. How do we treat the child who walks among us in a different way than most? In Margaret Drabble’s hands the answer is with a depth of empathy few master.” — Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones

“Meditative . . . I’m so glad that Margaret Drabble, like her characters, just decided to keep on going.” — Meg Wolitzer, NPR’s All Things Considered

“A closely observed group portrait of female friends, a patient insight into the joys and pains of motherhood, and an image of how society has changed and how it has not.” — Harper’s Magazine

Margaret Drabble is the author of The Sea Lady, The Seven Sisters, and The Peppered Moth, among other novels. She has written biographies of Arnold Bennett and Angus Wilson, and is the editor of the fifth and sixth editions of The Oxford Companion to English Literature.

Descripción Mariner. 1 Paperback(s), 2013. soft. Estado de conservación: New. Jessica Speight, a young anthropology student in 1960s London, is at the beginning of a promising academic career when an affair with her married professor turns her into a single mother, in this novel from the author of The Sea Lady, The Seven Sisters, and The Peppered Moth. Anna is a perfect baby with a delightful sunny nature; eventually, however, it becomes clear that Anna will not be a normal child. Told from the point of view of the group of mothers who surround Jess, this brilliant, prismatic novel is "a closely observed group portrait of female friends, a patient insight into the joys and pains of motherhood, and an image of how society has changed and how it has not."—Harper's"It is a testament to the intensity and skill of [Margaret] Drabble's writing that part of this novel's suspense has to do with our waiting for definitions, diagnoses, and certainties that are never offered; and that part of our satisfaction lies in our acceptance that they cannot be. These are characteristic Drabble maneuvers: to take us all the way to death and madness and then back, to life defiant and friendship itself defying time by living fully within it."—NYReview of Books 291.
