Anna Quindlen’s essays are as graceful, snappy, perceptive, and personal as anything she has ever written. They muse on what it is about babies that causes our hearts to crinkle and fold: “The meaning of life is in them.”
You’ll share some of the things that Quindlen has learned as a mother, such as: “From time to time, I would lie on the floor with my babies to see exactly what they were seeing when it looked as though they were just wasting time” and . . . “The next time you’re sitting in a meeting after three cups of coffee, badly needing to go to the bathroom but instead doodling dutifully, crossing your legs and watching the clock, remember that if you were a baby, you would have gone by now, and no one would be the wiser.”
Kelsh’s photographs and Quindlen’s text complement each other perfectly. Two masters of their craft have created an unusual meditation and wondrous book—a totally original gift for every parent or parent-to-be.
