A wonderfully disjointed narrative detailing the inexhaustible speculations (neuroses) of an apprehensive new mother in Brooklyn. At times reminiscent of Lydia Davis' bizarrely specific-vague short stories, with humor and form more akin to Mary Robison's One DOA, One on the Way, Renata Adler's Speedboat or Annie Dillard's The Writing Life.
