Articles
Meet Jen Brister, stand-up comedian, middle-aged adolescent and, more recently, a mum. But not that mum - she's the other one. Confused? Let's back up a bit. Two years ago, Jen's partner (a woman - they're not solicitors) gave birth to twin boys. Like every new parent, Jen has absolutely no clue what she's doing. Add 'gay' and 'non biological' to the mix and what do you get? Not a weird box of detergent, but a panicked beige lesbian desperately Googling, 'Will my babies love me?' at 3 a.m. This is a book for any parent who feels they don't fit the mold of a traditional 2.4 family.
