Gregg Wilhelm on Womb: Complete with its anxiety, joy

I met Gregg Wilhelm at the Baltimore Book Festival about a decade ago, when he was just starting what would become a cornerstone of the regional literary arts scene: CityLit Project. 

CityLit Project programs acclimated me to the local literary scene, coached me as I sought to better my writing and get it published, and later featured me and my fellow writers at such venues as the Baltimore Book Festival and CityLit Festival. So, to borrow his words, it was with a bit of “anxiety” and “joy” that I received his thoughts on my latest novel, Womb.

“The precocious prenatal narrator of Eric D. Goodman's novel, Womb, examines one of humanity's most common experiences — the nine-month drama of expecting parents—complete with its anxiety, joy, and adjustments. When a secret threatens to tear apart Jack and Penny, the arrival of this imaginative novel's in utero sage might be the ultimate solution.”
