Lisa Catherine Harper

Author Lisa Catherine Harperabout this book: A Double Life is part science, part memoir. It tells the story of becoming a mother, from conception through baby's first year, and shows why this ordinary journey proves so extraordinary for so many women. From extreme morning sickness, to crippling sciatica, to protracted labor; from the exhaustion and fatigue of baby's first months, to the emergence of infant consciousness and baby's first words, this book shows how the biological facts of pregnancy and early motherhood give rise to motherhood's life-altering changes. This is a book that is useful and revealing for expectant mothers and their partners, new parents, anyone who has a mother, or anyone who has ever wanted to understand what becoming a mother really means. A Double Life has been called a "must-read" and "universal, moving, and relevant." Winner of the River Teeth Literary Nonfiction Award and a 2012 Independent Press Highlight for the National Book Critics Circle, A Double Life resonates with clear, well-reported facts and intimate, engaging prose.
