Nobody's Baby (Paperback)
This memoir includes a collection of memories from the author's life as well as a combination of others' lives from which she has created characters. Yvonne Gurley addresses several stereotypes that women are often placed in. She found it important to tell the story of the women who are judged and silenced. How does a woman find herself with a married man? How does a young girl with high aspirations become an addict? How do women end up in abusive relationships? These are the stereotypes and these are the women whom she gave a voice. If a woman finds herself in one of these categories, is she indeed, weak, naive, or homewrecker, or stupid? According to most of society, she is. Yvonne shares the real-life experiences, thoughts, and emotions of herself and others from the narrative of one main character's experience and perspective.
