The Truth about Babies: From A - Z

Front Cover
Granta Books, 2003 - Family & Relationships - 337 pages
0 Reviews
In this unusual book, Ian Sansom conveys the oddness and beauty of human beings in their first year of life, and the cataclysmic affect they have on those around them. At a time when most books on babies are manuals crammed with milestones and measurements, The Truth About Babies is different. It is written as a series of meditations on every aspect of babies, from bathing, boredom, breastfeeding, and buggies to weaning, weight, words, and work. Sansom manages to be both playful and profound, both philosophical and earthy, and frequently very funny.
