The Book Show #1438 - Elisa Albert
In her latest novel, After Birth, Elisa Albert writes about motherhood and friendship. The book tells the story of Ari who lives in a town in upstate New York and is supposed to be working on a Ph.D. in women’s studies but she has major postpartum depression.
The book issues a wake-up call to a culture that turns its new mothers into exiles and expects them to act like natives.
