Preorder signed copies of AND NOW WE HAVE EVERYTHING

    We're delighted to offer signed and personalized copies of Meaghan O'Connell's And Now We Have Everything, a raw, funny, and fiercely honest account of becoming a mother before feeling like a grown up.

    When Meaghan O'Connell got accidentally pregnant in her twenties and decided to keep the baby, she realized that the book she needed -- a brutally honest, agenda-free reckoning with the emotional and existential impact of motherhood -- didn't exist. So she decided to write it herself. And Now We Have Everything is O'Connell's exploration of the cataclysmic, impossible-to-prepare-for experience of becoming a mother. With her dark humor and hair-trigger B.S. detector, O'Connell addresses the pervasive imposter syndrome that comes with unplanned pregnancy, the fantasies of a "natural" birth experience that erode maternal self-esteem, post-partum body and sex issues, and the fascinating strangeness of stepping into a new, not-yet-comfortable identity.

    Channeling fears and anxieties that are still taboo and often unspoken, And Now We Have Everything is an unflinchingly frank, funny, and visceral motherhood story for our times, about having a baby and staying, for better or worse, exactly yourself.

    Preorder your signed and personalized copies of And Now We Have Everything by Sunday 4/8 in order to assure a personalization. Books will be mailed Tuesday 4/10 and delivery estimate depends on your choice of shipping at checkout.
