The Garden | Clare Beams

“The Garden renders beautifully the uncanny, haunted space that pregnancy both occupies and creates. Beams‘s glancing, needle-prick prose reminds me of Shirley Jackson‘s work in its ability to conjure up women–their histories, their fears, the complexity of their desires, and their power. I loved this novel.”
