The Same Story

“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.
