Cover shote of Making Babies by Anne Enright
Radio 4’s Book of the Week is Making Babies by Irish author Anne Enright.

It’s a humourous account of modern motherhood, and is to be published in the UK on Thursday. The Guardian published selected extracts from the book last month (see I have a buggy, I’m hard).
