One-quarter to one-third of Australian women are now and will remain, childless. Here is a book full of intimate insights that taket he reader beyond the many myths about why women are going without and how they feel about it.
Foreget selfish, ambitious, uncarring and tough. Childless: Reflections on Life's Longing for itself is about longing and loss, grief and resilience. In it, Gillian Guthrie delves deftly beneath the childless women's armour of top job, financial independence and oh-so-exciting lifestyle options, finding more often a sadness that is seldom shared - a silent longing for the intangible presence of a child that never was and never will be.
Childless is a tender exploration of a taboo topic, both personal and political.
