The Baby: A Video Novel

'“Viva is a walking bullshit detector, and The Baby is probably the most clear-eyed, witty book about unconventional motherhood ever written, so ahead of its time the world might just about be ready for it now.” —Elisa Albert, author of The Book of Dahlia and After Birth “With droll and delicious wit, Viva lays bare every anxiety, joy, and compulsion of motherhood. Since my first baby was born I have been hooked on baby books, but Viva’s The Baby is my all time favorite. Read it!” —Alix Kates Shulman “I think The Baby is enchanting, or maybe enchanted, an extraordinary verbal videotape of a life in the process of being lived.” —Joan Didion “Viva is one of our very rare natural spellcasting storytellers.” —Christopher Isherwood “Funny, tender, almost a female Rousseau’s Confessions brought up to date. Vive Viva!” —Eve Merriam “Trooping from New York to Paris to Morrocco . . . trying with equal lack of success to wean her baby and wean herself from her difficult husband Frederick, Viva’s writer/protagonist, Augustine Marat, narrates a contemporary female version of On the Road that is infinitely better written, more intelligent, more honest and funnier than Kerouac’s.” —Rolling Stone'
