In this personal essay, a guide in Puerto Rico inadvertently leads Suzanne Roberts to stop collecting men as if they were souvenirs.
“In this story, two young women are pregnant at the same time by the same man. One of the women is a musician and a writer and a feminist, and she sports tattoos and body piercings before they are cool. The other woman is an outdoorsy graduate student and a feminist, and she wears J. Crew sweater sets and Mary Janes.”
Roberts writes about being 24 and pregnant, grieving the loss of a parent and struggling to reconcile a view of the other woman who is also carrying her “on-again-off-again”‘s child.
