'Immediately, poignantly, gripping...magnificent.' - Zoe Williams, The Guardian. When Chitra Ramaswamy discovered she was pregnant, she longed for a book that went above and beyond a manual; a book that did more than describe what was happening in her growing body. One that, instead, got to the very heart of this overwhelming, confusing and exciting experience. Expecting takes the reader on a physical, emotional, philosophical and artistic odyssey through pregnancy. A memoir exploring each of the nine months of Chitra's pregnancy, Expecting is a book of intimate, strange, wild and lyrical essays that pay tribute to this most extraordinary and ordinary of experiences.

"Everything we might need is present - breathing and alive and considered - in this beautifully written account of the body that once carried us" - The Guardian

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Immediately, poignantly, gripping...magnificent.' --Zoe Williams, Guardian. 'Elegant, funny, brimming with acute observations and suffused with a gentle intimacy. Expecting combines a poet's feel for language with a journalistic candour.' --Gavin Francis. 'Beautiful and oddly compelling...All of life is here, oceans are crossed, fates decided, it bristles with love and terror and place, and has a spectacular, blood splattered finale. An extraordinary book and a glorious read.'--Denise Mina. 'Like spending time with a particularly wise and funny friend...Writing of great insight, humour and emotional intelligence.'--Kenny Farquharson, Times. 'An extraordinary book ... to write so well, so richly about so ordinary an event. Lovely.' --Sara Maitland.
