Massive ridiculous goodness. And some excerpt. Cool? Totally.
"There is a strong element of satire in Nine Months. Bomer
scrutinizes grim parental impulses, but does so with a phenomenal
comedic pace. The lead character of Sonia is fully formed, at once
over-the-top, entirely human, and thoroughly relatable. Supporting
characters--neurotic parents slavishly following the latest medical or
pop-psychological study on how to create the Perfect Kid--only make
Sonia more sympathetic. No doubt, Bomer's skillfulness with
characterization comes from her thriving career as a short fiction
writer. (Baby & Other Stories, one of her earlier collections, delves into themes similar to Nine Months.) Indeed, her style and tone evokes the early works of Roddy Doyle--The Snapper immediately springs to mind--which is itself exciting because it suggests Bomer will soon be evoking Doyle's later masterworks."
