The Gettysburg Review, Spring 2009
The Gettysburg Review, Spring 2009

Flu has laid me low for the last few days.   But getting the Spring 2009 edition of The Gettysburg Review cheered me.  It includes “Natural Births” — a chapter from the book I’m working to finish.  This is my first piece of literary nonfiction in print (I’ve had a few others come out in online publications this winter).   In it, I share the story of how I gave birth in a village in Nepal and struggled to reconcile my fantasies of natural childbirth with the realities of Hindu culture.

When I feel better, I look forward to reading more of the work in this issue of TGR, including poems by Floyd Skloot and Rita Dove and essays by Amy Andrews and Jeffrey Meyers.
