Publisher Description

Mom, dad(s), and baby make—four?

Laurie and Alan are thrilled to find out that they'll finally be having a baby, until they discover the unthinkable: the doctor has impregnated Laurie with the wrong man's sperm. Alan is reeling, torn about the new child that's not his and suddenly unsure about any of his commitments. His shock is almost as great as that of Jack, a college junior who suddenly finds out he's a father, and whose identity is discovered as he is juggling finals, his fraternity, a fund shortage, and two girlfriends. Frank, funny, and forthright, Expecting is the fascinating story of three people bound together by a fateful mistake, and a thoughtful exploration of what it really means to be a parent.

  • “Every once in a while that truly special book comes along that you just cannot put down, that you just cannot stop thinking about. That’s Expecting. At once hysterical and heartbreaking, sweet and wise, Ann Hamilton's breakout debut is simply brilliant. With expertly drawn characters, complex and authentic as our closest friends, Expecting is an unexpected joy—a beautiful ode to relationships and love and all the things that really matter, rendered by a master storyteller. Book clubs grab this now!”

    - Jeffrey Stepakoff, bestselling author of Fireworks Over Toccoa
  • “A charming, big-hearted novel, Expecting is an exuberant celebration of contemporary families in all their insane, messy beauty.”

    - Jillian Medoff, bestselling author of I Couldn’t Love You More and Hunger Point
  • “Ripe with conflict and controversy, Expecting is a perfect book club pick. Ann Lewis Hamilton takes a serious subject matter-infertility-and layers it with havoc, heart, and humor. Expecting will lure you in with its fresh premise and sharply drawn characters. A remarkable debut, Expecting is a beautiful reminder of the resilience of love and the elasticity of family ties.”

    - Lori Nelson Spielman, author of The Life List
