MOTHER IS A VERB An Unconventional History

by | Read by Rachel Bavidge

Contemporary Culture • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Rachel Bavidge takes listeners through a deep meditation on the world's oldest profession: motherhood. She aptly delivers the history, anecdotes, and reflections that comprise this exploration of what it means to be a mother, both in the past as well as the present. Bavidge takes on the various personas of the women who were interviewed on these very personal subjects, including their attitudes towards sex. Her British accent captures the personalities of the British participants. She takes listeners through the author's findings on changes in attitude toward women's roles, relationships with their partners, and childbearing and child-rearing experiences. While some may find her deliberate pace to be unvaried, this audiobook will engage those interested in gender studies. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
