Summary
"A wall of silence surrounds the experience of women who are childless, whether by choice or by circumstance. Bearing Life is the first anthology to marshall the power of literature to break this silence. Here, more than forty contemporary writers reflect candidly and movingly on what it means to live as women without children. These selections move through the ambivalence and denial childless women confront within themselves, to the misunderstanding and hostility they confront in the outside world, toward a point where an acceptance and even celebration of childlessness can begin to take place."--BOOK JACKET
