Pamela Erens - Eleven Hours


Eleven Hours is a visceral, vital, microcosmic illumination of the most pivotal moment of any woman's life: giving birth.

With taut, sensitive prose, Erens explores the lives of two women in New York - one in labour, the other her Haitian midwife - to gracefully reveal the seminal moments that have led them to meet here, now, during childbirth. With this riveting, insightful and sometimes harrowing novel, Erens cements herself as one of modern fiction's most diverse and discerning authors.
