Release Date Announced for Womb

Merge Publishing has announced the official release date for the forthcoming Womb: a novel in utero. My latest novel is being released on Tuesday, March 21, 2017.

Why Tuesday, March 21?

The publisher and I thought it would be fitting to deliver Womb during the season of rebirth. The first day of spring is Monday, March 20. However, books (like albums) are traditionally released on Tuesday. So Womb: a novel in utero will be released on Tuesday, March 21.

Early readers and reviewers of Womb have called the book “engagingly original,” “strange and wonderful,” “amazing,” “a cocktail of all human emotion,” “brave,” “full of wisdom and goodwill,” and say that it “has a lot to say” and is “written with sophistication and poetry.”

Reviews have compared Womb to Ian Mcewan’s Nutshell and Emma Donoghue’s Room, and said, “Goodman rises to the challenge posed by the foetus’ limited perspective, relating a story of betrayal and domestic turmoil through the filter of the uterine wall.”

Promoters say that you only need to repeat something three times for it to be remembered, so I won’t mention that Womb: a novel in utero will be officially released on Tuesday, March 21 again.
