In her touching, provocative and profoundly insightful book, she captures a sense of what motherhood really feels like – how intense, sensuous, joyful, boring, profound and dark it can be. as a busy mum myself I prefer to read something that overall lifts my mood and reminds me, overall, how really really lucky I am to be a mum. For Stroud, there is no question of an epidural: labour is and needs to be an extreme experience, which takes her to the brink of life and death, and “feels to me like the very reason I was put on this planet”.

She pulls no punches about the complex emotional space motherhood inhabits, both the extreme love and the extreme boredom.

However, as I started in on reading the book I was almost immediately taken in by Stroud's ability to describe everything so viscerally. Co těm dětem chce předat, když jediné, co v životě dělala, bylo bytí matkou (a ještě asi ne úplně dobrou). My Wild and Sleepless Nights examines what it means to be a mother, and reveals with unflinching honesty the many conflicting emotions that this entails: the joy and the wonder, the loneliness and despair.

Her own mother was brain damaged in a horrific riding accident when Stroud was 16: “Much of my life has been about seeking strong motion both to make me feel alive and distract from the pain of existence.I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it to anyone else who loves reading about motherhood or who is already mother and wants to read about someone else's journey! I always appreciate honesty in a person and it made me love my time listening to Stroud reading her book to me (as I had the audiobook). Sometimes I think that a lot of parenthood is like that morning, trying to create an impression that you know what you are doing and are in control. Autorka měla první dítě v 16 a až když se dostala na počet pět dětí, řekla si "stačí a teď se budu věnovat sobě". However, now I feel like I need to read a book that tells me just how wonderful motherhood is or when it isn't how to regain a sense of self !
