Coles and Godwin, both accomplished writers, offer insightful and amusing a lternating first-person accounts of the nine-month period of awaiting paren thood. What makes their account especially appealing is the running comment ary on life in New York, viewed from the perspective of two Brits. Godwin s tarts off dealing with a cancer scare that has provoked writer's block, and then Coles faces the prospect of pregnancy at age 36, when she's just gott en settled as a correspondent for a British newspaper. Early on, in search of a gynecologist, Coles observes that primary-care physicians are dedicate d to preventing patients from seeing specialists and thereby saving the HMO some money. Godwin is fearful that Coles will use pregnancy "as an all-pur pose excuse for bad behaviour," even as he scouts for "digestives known as graham crackers" to ease morning sickness. They comment on "voicemail hell, " California king-sized mattresses, and the American obsession with pills f or every tick, twitch, and pain. Their British humor and perspective provid e refreshing insights into pregnancy and American culture. N° de ref. de la librería RWARE0000007948
