An Exact Replica of a Figment of My Imagination by Elizabeth McCracken

This book was issued to me for review from Bestsellersworld.

Elizabeth McCracken loses a child and also has a child in this book. We are with her in France as she revels in her pregnancy, her first, at an older age. We are with her as she learns that the baby is not alive and with her as she goes through the birth of her stillborn baby boy, Pudding.
This had to have been a very tough, but maybe therapeutic thing for this author to do. This book will absolutely have you bawling and laughing, mostly bawling. Elizabeth McCracken is such a brave woman to have the capacity to share with us all of the emotions that she experienced during this rough & emotional time.
There is a death of a child and a birth of a child in this book. Both are amazingingly written about.
