Vessels : A Memoir of What Wasn't, Hardback Book

Vessels : A Memoir of What Wasn't Hardback



When Dan, a writer, met Bekah, a potter dedicated to traditional Japanese ceramics, they swiftly fell in love. 'Of all the women I've ever met,' Dan told a friend, 'she's the first one who felt like family.' But while preparing for the birth of their first child at Christmastime, tragedy struck.

In prose as unadorned as his wife's pottery, Raeburn recounts their lives as they clashed and clung to each other through a string of unsuccessful pregnancies before finally, joyfully, becoming parents together.

Based on Raeburn's acclaimed New Yorker essay, Vessels is an unforgettable love story and a powerful portrait of a marriage cemented by the very events that nearly broke it.
