For every parent who wonders what on earth is happening...

***Birth and Other Surprises***is a memoir of childhood in the seventies (no seat belts, no bike helmets, lots of eating paste) and early parenting adventures (no privacy, no clue, lots of eating what's left on the plate) by INDIE Book of the Year Finalist for Humor Kimberly Davis Basso. Both a follow up and a prequel for fans of I'm a Little Brain Dead, it's written in the same brutally hilarious style and will ignite book club discussions all over again. Early parenting lessons from a child of the seventies - because you have to remember what it's like to be a child, in order to raise a child.

Early praise for Birth and Other Surprises:

"Birth and Other Surprises is an honest, no-holds-barred account of childbearing from the most important person in the room. I thought that not much surprised me in this arena anymore, but I laughed so hard I was crying. This brought me right back to the birth of my own babies and reminded me what glorious and surreal moments those were. Basso's writing is at once touching, heartfelt, and hilarious - and shows us that how birth, in all its technicolor glory, is at once beautiful and bonkers."
-- Erin Mattingly, Certified Birth Doula

“Basso makes you laugh, make you laugh loud and hard as you move through the ridiculous, the sublime… It’s only after that you realize what she’s done, that through her humor she brings you deeper into the great truth, that is Basso’s gift.”
-- William Quigley Author of Joy Bliss This

“After reading Basso’s book on childbirth, I will never look at the chest burster scene in Alien the same way.”
-- Bradley Upton, Author of Blood Stakes
