The 12 stories in Rosenwaike's debut collection capture the vast and intimate moments of motherhood and womanhood. Rosenwaike's characters are hopeful, struggling, and conflicted, and through their stories, she explores the ways that parenthood is not simply joy and sleeplessness. A woman who meets up with other motherless women every Mother's Day learns she is unexpectedly pregnant. A couple who never planned to have children decide to change their minds. After a year of an ambiguous relationship, a woman chooses to skip taking her birth-control pills. Two extended families gather for a newborn's first holiday season. A poet revisits her unrequited college love in the month before she gives birth. In each story, Rosenwaike's remarkable prose conjures emotions so effectively that readers will feel pulled into the characters' lives. While the stories are all connected by motherhood, each explores additional themes: changing friendships, aging, defining family, building a life, and more. Whether parents or not, readers who love short literary fiction will connect with Look How Happy I'm Making You. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
