Yes, I do have first-hand experience of infertility and TTC. I went through many rounds of both IUI and IVF. Some of the Biographer's scenes in Red Clocks are ripped straight from the headlines of my own life, including the fertility doctor doing a pelvic exam while dressed up as Slash from Guns 'n Roses.

All the uncertainty, hope, fear, anxiety, and superstition of the TTC process -- I know it well, and I totally empathize with what you're going through. Sending you lots of strong & joyful energy.

“The comparing mind is a despairing mind.”
Leni Zumas, Red Clocks

“She knew—it was her job as a teacher of history to know—how many horrors are legitimated in public daylight, against the will of most of the people.”
Leni Zumas, Red Clocks

“What does the word “spinster” do that “bachelor” doesn’t do? Why do they carry different associations? These are language acts, people!”
