'An immensely powerful, cannot-look-away novel of heart and bone and muscle and blood. The war novel has a rival... and it is breath-taking.' The Herald

Lore arrives at the hospital alone: no husband, no partner, no friends. She is in labour. Franckline, a nurse in the maternity ward, herself newly pregnant, is assigned to her care. Over the spiralling course of eleven hours, the women are thrown together into a fierce, physical intimacy, and they begin to force one another to reckon with their pasts and their futures. Lore must disentangle herself from a love triangle; Franckline must move beyond deep traumas; both must prepare themselves for the fear, joy, anguish and awe of motherhood.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Childbirth, this uniquely female form of heroism, is rarely documented in our literature, and I've never seen it rendered with the extraordinary insight, urgency, and potency of Eleven Hours -- Karen Russell, author of Swamplandia!
Gorgeous, harrowing, and intensely urgent - I can't stop thinking about this book -- Molly Antopol, author of The UnAmericans
I loved Eleven Hours... A gorgeous, haunting, slender novel -- Roxane Gay, author of Bad Feminist
A story about birth, which is to say a story about life and death... A novel with the -adrenaline-rush pacing of an action movie * New York Times *
Exhilarating * Wall Street Journal *
Extraordinary * Boston Globe *
Intense, provocative...a deeply rewarding high-wire act * The National *
