A brave, pioneering book that gives voice to the stories behind an issue that affects millions.
From the playgrounds of Glasgow to the villages of Bangladesh; from religious rites to ancient superstitions; from the world's richest people to its powerless and enslaved, Lorna Gibb's masterful Childless Voices paints a global portrait of people without children. Brilliantly grouped by thematic commonality (Those who long, Those who were denied, Those who Choose, etc) the book is a testament to the power of listening, and the power of sharing stories. It is an essential, moving and surprising book on a subject which touches everyone.
Dr Lorna Gibb is the author of biographies of Rebecca West and Lady Hester Stanhope as well as the author of the novel A Ghost's Story. She is a senior lecturer at Middlesex University.
