Womb is Buzzing

Womb: a novel in utero is being published in March 2017, but the buzz has already begun. On more than one occasion, I’ve been at local literary events and overheard others talking about it. And the novel has been mentioned on several occasions in association with reviews of Ian McEwan’s Nutshell. There’s even already been a review of Womb along with two other novels in utero.

And now, the blurbs are starting to emerge. Here’s one from author Charles Rammelkamp. Charles is the author of such works as American Zeitgeist and Mixed Signals, although there are no mixed signals in his thoughts on Womb.

“Eric D. Goodman's absorbing new novel, Womb, is about a high-risk pregnancy—in more ways than one—told from the fetus's point of view. The narrator is full of wisdom and goodwill, which we understand to be our birthright, but it's his father, Jack, whose character and courage burst from the pages like … well, like an infant from the womb. Eric D. Goodman is a talented storyteller.”

-- Charles Rammelkamp,
author of Mata Hari: Eye of the Day and American Zeitgeist
