520    Meaghan O'Connell always felt totally alienated by the 
       cutesy, sanctimonious, sentimental tone of most writing 
       about motherhood. After getting accidentally pregnant in 
       her twenties, she realized that the book she needed--a 
       brutally honest, agenda-less take on the emotional and 
       existential impact of motherhood--didn't exist. So she 
       decided to write it herself.  And Now We Have Everything 
       is O'Connell's brave exploration of transitioning into 
       motherhood as a fledgling young adult. With her dark humor
       and hair-trigger B.S. detector, O'Connell addresses the 
       pervasive imposter syndrome that comes with unplanned 
       pregnancy, the second adolescence of a changing postpartum
       body, the problem of sex post-baby, the weird push to make
       "mom friends," and the fascinating strangeness of stepping
       into a new, not-yet-comfortable identity.   Most 
       unforgettably, O'Connell brings us into the delivery room 
       as no writer has before, rendering childbirth in all its 
       feverish gore and glory, and shattering the fantasies of a
       "magical" or "natural" experience that warp our 
       expectations and erode maternal self-esteem.
