Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Nuanced, intellectually ambitious and unnervingly frank.- The Washington Post The strength of [ Impossible Motherhood ] lies in exposing the need to talk about abortion as a public health issue. It's impossible to take abortion out of the realm of morality, religion and politics and place it solely in the medical realm, along with diabetes and cancer and high cholesterol. But it is crucial to see it, first and foremost, as an issue of the human body: a woman's body.- The Miami Herald Extraordinary and incendiary&a potential launching pad for a discussion about abortion that is more personal than political&Vilar turns her experiences into a reminder that the complexity of abortion extends beyond the scientific and political arenas& Impossible Motherhood doesnt shy away from the wounds that are part of Vilars journey toward independence; it embraces them, making her remarkable story full of assurance but free of bitterness.- Bitch Magazine " Impossible Motherhood tells why [Irene Vilar] had 15 abortions in 16 years&How is that humanly possible in either sense of the word-the moral or the physical? In the telling, however, it seems as inevitable as sunrise.Vilar, who eventually escaped this horrid cycle to have two children, writes not to excuse, but to explain herself." - Elle Magazine In Impossible Motherhood Vilar does exactly what the best memoirists do: She tells us the truth about everything, even when the truth utterly confounds&.[Vilar] tells [her story] to us with courage and grace and a true writers skill.- The Oregonian "Vilar does not mean to advocate on either side of the abortion debate; ranging far beyond the politics of abortion, her book is a controversial and intense tale of generational and national trauma&[Vilar is] a writer of brutal honesty and profound intelligence."- ForeWord Magazine " Impossible Motherhood is like a journey into a harrowing underworld but guided by Vilar's gifts and her light we emerge in the end transformed, enlightened, and oh so alive." JUNOT DIAZ , AUTHOR OF THE BRIEF WONDROUS LI FE OF OSCAR WAO "I have never read a book like Impossible Motherhood , Irene Vilar's disturbing, heart-wrenching, and ultimately triumphant memoir, for the simple and understandable reason that no one of her gender has ever summoned the brutally raw, transcendent courage to write such a bookand yes, confess to such a troubling story." BOB SHACOCHIS , AUTHOR OF EASY IN THE IS LANDS "Irene Vilar's dramatic and beautifully drawn story forces the reader to confront the power of sexuality and procreation that often is the only power a young woman perceives she owns in this world. IMPOSSIBLE MOTHERHOOD is profound, raw, wrenching, and honest to the bone. Yet despite the title, its message is that no matter how intense the pain one has experienced, healing and redemption are in fact possible."-Gloria Feldt From the Trade Paperback edition.

Impossible Motherhood: Testimony of an Abortion Addict - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 9781590513200

ID: 7239090

Irene Vilar was just a teenager, a pliant young college undergraduate in thrall to a fifty-year-old professor, when they embarked on a relationship that led to marriage-a union of impossible odds-and sixteen abortions in fifteen years. Vilar knows that she is destined to be misunderstood, that many will see her nightmare as a story of abusing a right, of using abortion as a means of birth control. But it isn't that. Her nightmare is part of an awful secret, and the real story is shrouded in shame, colonialism, self-mutilation, and a family legacy that features a heroic grandmother, a suicidal mother, and two heroin-addicted brothers. Hers is a story that touches on American exploitation and reproductive repression in Puerto Rico. It is a story that looks back on her traumatic childhood growing up in the shadow of her mother's death and the footsteps of her famed grandmother, the political activist Lolita Lebron. Vilar seamlessly weaves together past, present, and future, channeling a narrative that is at once dramatic and subtle. " Impossible Motherhood "is a heartrending and ultimately triumphant testimonial of shame and servility as told by a writer looking back on her history of addiction. Abortion has never offered any honest person easy answers, and Vilar's dark journey through self-inflicted wounds, compulsive patterns, and historical hauntings revisits the difficulties this country has with the subject and prompts an important, much-needed discussion-literary, political, social, and philosophical. Vilar's is a powerful story of loss and mourning that bravely delves into selfhood, national identity, family responsibility, and finally motherhood itself-today, Vilar is the mother of two beautiful children Impossible Motherhood: Testimony of an Abortion Addict Vilar, Irene / Morgan, Robin, Other Press (NY)
