aliciae08's review against another edition
It both reads like someone’s journal—scattered, but with the central theme hidden inside; and it also reads like someone’s xotero—their notes on articles that moved them just enough to be considered for a dissertation.
I didn’t love this book, but I definitely didn’t hate it either. It’s solidly a 3 for me. Sometimes the writing was pretentious and the sentences convoluted, but other times they were clear. Nelson talks honestly about motherhood and birthing, what her relationship looks like to her with a gender fluid partner and how their life is made up with all it’s mess, all it’s grief/fear and all it’s love.

Especially loved her perspective of being partnered with someone who is gender non-conforming/trans/non-binary.

Minor: AbortionFrequent mentions of Buddhism, reference to a theorist who makes questionable claims about being pregnant with mixed children as a white woman, and naming their child with a Native American name are all aspects of the books that entirely fail to interrogate the role whiteness, which is both jarring and disappointing.
