Boy or boy how do I relate to this memoir! You would think that it's based on me. With one exception: I detect a feeling of guilt in between the lines that the author writes. I've never, ever had that with my choice to remain childless by choice. Perhaps it's because of her upbringing in the neurotic US of A? I'm happy that I share neither the guilt-trip nor the need to defend my choice of a life with no kids against the breeders.
