Praise For Breeding in Captivity: One Woman's Unusual Path to Motherhood…
"Stacy Bolt has written the perfect memoir-one that is so smart and funny and full of heart that it transcends what it's about and becomes instead, quite simply, a book about all of us. Breeding in Captivity is a dazzling, wise, beautiful debut. -Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild"Stacy Bolt, in Breeding in Captivity, tells the unvarnished, wicked truth about the modern quest for motherhood. And it's the real truth, not some fake, edgy, culturally-approved truth. Forget everything you thought you knew about infertility and adoption. Bolt's experience is harrowing and darkly hilarious. It's funny, sassy, irreverent, and has a haunted house in it, and also a 6' iguana named Elvis. Furthermore, it's infertility in Portland. It's the quest for motherhood, with a bird on it.” —Karen Karbo, author of How Georgia Became O'Keeffe
“Honest, poignant, funny, and spot-on, Stacy Bolt’s Breeding in Captivity chronicles her and her husband’s winding—and a tad loopy—path to parenthood. Step into this memoir and you will be greeted at the door with a martini and a cozy seat in the middle of the heartbreaking, hopeful, and sometimes ridiculous world of infertility, guided by Bolt’s sure, witty, and heart-wise voice throughout.”
—Susan Woodring, author of Springtime on Mars
