Steve Himmer on Womb: Highly Attuned, Deeply Inquisitive Novel

Steve Himmer of Emerson College is the author of such novels as Scratch, Fram, and The Bee-Loud Glade. What was Steve's reaction to Womb: a novel in utero?

"Womb’s wise before his years narrator has a whole world to show us — our own — if only we, and his own struggling parents, can remember how to listen past the noise of our busy postnatal lives. He knows big things we’ve forgotten and he knows he’ll forget them soon, too, but this highly attuned, deeply inquisitive novel gives us a welcome chance to be reminded of what is always already there."

-- Steve Himmer,
