Juliet EilperinEdited by Canadian writer Lynne Van Luven, Nobody's Mother offers a contemplative and frank look at what it means never to bear children. At times painful, occasionally humorous, the book challenges society's traditional assumptions about the role of women as childbearers. The collection occasionally has the cozy, superior air of a feminist collective, where women from an array of ethnic backgrounds and sectors of society speak proudly of how they've spent their day challenging the status quo. Most of the time, though, the book reads like an intimate conversation among friends, in which someone close to you has decided to explain the choices she's made in life.
