San Francisco Chronicle: "’Choice’ explores reproductive decisions, and their ramifications"
True Stories of Birth, Contraception, Infertility, Adoption, Single Parenthood and Abortion
Edited by Karen E. Bender and Nina de Gramont
This collection could have been called the Book of Job, so relentlessly do these personal essays exhibit, actually, a lack of choice. In contrast to the title, virtually none of these women presents herself as actively making decisions; they’re all passive, with circumstances – usually harrowing ones – happening to them.
I don’t agree with her at all, and it’s not just because I’m in it!
Awful and inaccurate review (and I am not featured in the book). Really, I wondered why the reviewer was so disbelieving of other women sharing life experiences that they have had.
