To breed or not to breed? That is the question twenty-eight accomplished writers--including Anne Lamott, Rick Moody, Kathryn Harrison, and Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez--ponder in this collection of provocative, honest, and deeply personal essays. Based on a popular series at Salon.com, Maybe Baby features parents and nonparents alike exploring how and why they decided whether to have children.

This powerful collection offers both frank and nuanced looks at those choices, both alternative and traditional, from a wide range of viewpoints. From abortion to adoption, from ambivalence to baby lust, from single parenting to searching for the right partner to have a baby with, Maybe Baby brings together the full force of opinions about this national--but also intensely personal--debate.

"Statistics show childless couples are happier," Cain said. "Their lives are self-directed, they have a better chance of intimacy, and they do not have the stresses, financial and emotional, of parenthood." p9
