The Hunger for a Child
I don't know Jenny Rough. But I've slowly come to know her splendid, heartfelt writing through the odd, but distinctly collegial ethos that comes from long-time blog writing. We have a mutual friend with yet another blog (she's another woman I've never met, but one that I've at least shared several emails with, and since she happens to live in the same city as me, we just might meet eventually). And Jenny, probably following a link from my comment left on Michelle's blog, once left a comment here. So in the spirit of symmetry, I decided to check out her blog and read a little of what she had to say. I gather from her autobio that she's a California native who now lives in the D.C. area, and a former lawyer who left the law behind to write. It's immediately apparent that she's a fine writer. Still, none of that prepared me for this entry about her attempts to get pregnant. The final line left me a little staggered. Good luck, Jenny.
