The Potomac on Womb: Thought-Provoking Novel of Ideas

The Potomac: a journal of poetry and politics has published a review of Womb: a novel in utero, describing the book as “thought-provoking” and comparing it to Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress.

Womb is an entertaining, provocative read that stays with the reader after he puts the book down.”

"Like Goodman's earlier novel, Tracks, Womb is a Baltimore story, though, given the point–of–view of the unborn narrator, this is not quite as crucial. Still, scenes from Federal Hill, Towson and elsewhere give a flavor to events. Penny's and Jack's struggles could happen in no other place to feel at once so homey and so anonymous."

Read the entire review in the latest issue of The Potomac!
