In the tradition of the acclaimed graphic memoirs Fun Home and Persepolis comes a funny, insightful, and deeply moving book about learning to appreciate what we have when we can’t seem to get what we want. For Phoebe Potts, the path to maternal fulfillment has not been easy. All her friends seem to get pregnant with ease, but she can’t conceive for all her trying. As Phoebe and her husband Jeff navigate the emotionally and physically fraught world of fertility experts, she takes stock of what matters in the rest of her life and reflects on her winding journey to finding her true calling as an artist. From her days as an amateur union organizer in Texas to her spiral into paralyzing depression in Mexico; her soul-shrinking, all-for-the-benefits stint as an administrative assistant at a fancy university in Cambridge to her flirtation with rabbinical school, Phoebe illuminates the bumpy road to vocational and personal contentment and the truly good eggs—an unforgettably nutty mother, a devoted husband, a team of therapists, hairdressers and landladies and a sidekick housecat—that create a new definition of what really makes a family.
