The Anti-Romantic Child

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Priscilla Gilman discusses how she came to terms with her son’s developmental disorder and how it radically altered the expectations she had about motherhood. Her memoir The Anti-Romantic Child talks about why her vision of what her child would be like wasn’t fulfilled in the ways she imagined, and she reveals how events and situations that are often perceived as setbacks can actually inspire and enrich us.
