"So.... what is your book actually about?" people ask me. I usually say "Ummmm, you know, stuff! Important stuff! Interesting stuff!" and they generally nod politely, but really, that's not what anybody wants to know. After all, I think nachos are important and interesting, but I don't think anybody wants to read a book about them, do they?
"But what is it actually about?" they repeat, and I always used to think gosh, I wish I had a back cover I could point to. Eventually I realised oh right, I guess I have to write that. So I did, and here it is - the back cover of Hypothetical Future Baby: An Unsentimental Adoption Memoir.
This is what the book is about.
