I could not pull myself away from this book. STILL BORN is the horrifying, miraculous, nuanced story of two friends and their decisions to have children. When Alina becomes pregnant, her doctors assure her the child won't live. Then, she does. Without melodrama or melancholy, Nettel's characters endure moral dilemmas beyond imagination, and commit acts that make life more complex, and richer still. STILL BORN leaves me in awe.
