A bold, unapologetic first novel about a pregnant mother and wife who abandons her family in search of an identity that is hers alone. 

"Deliciously, dangerously rogue." —Marcy Dermansky, author of Bad Marie

Sonia, a young Brooklyn mother shaken by her unexpected (third) pregnancy, abandons her husband and kids and takes off on a cross-country odyssey in search of an identity separate from her family. She does everything a pregnant woman shouldn't do—engaging in casual sex and smoking weed—as she retraces her past and attempts to reclaim her sidelined career as an artist. Nine Months is a fierce, daring page-turner of a novel—a lacerating response to the culture of mommy blogs, helicopter parents and "parental correctness" as well as an unflinching look at the choices women face when trying to balance art and family.


From the Trade Paperback edition.
