Birth and Other Surprises

2020 INDIES Winner
Honorable Mention, Humor (Adult Nonfiction)

"Birth and Other Surprises" is a memoir of childhood in the seventies (no seat belts, no bike helmets, lots of eating paste) and early parenting adventures (no privacy, no clue, lots of eating what's left on the plate) by award winning humorist Kimberly Davis Basso. Written in her brutally honest style, essays range from how to sleep standing up to how to destroy your child's love of sport, along with water birth sound effects and what giraffes can teach us about labor and delivery.
