Small animals

by Kim Brooks | 09 September 2019
Category: General Biography
One cool spring morning, Kim Brooks made a split-second decision to leave her four-year old son in the car while she ran into a store. What happened next would consume the next several years of her life and ultimately motivated her to begin writing about the broader subject of parenthood and fear. In this book, Brooks asks, of all the emotions inherent in parenting, is there any more universal than or profound than fear? To be a parent is to be afraid. And yet, the objects and intensity of our fear vary based on culture, temperament, and the historical moment in which we live. In the signature style that has dazzled millions of fans of the essays she publishes in New York Magazine, LennyLetter, Salon, and Buzzfeed, Brooks blends personal memoir, investigative reporting and sociological critique.
