"Achingly wise . . . Admirers of Marilynne Robinson will find themselves very much at home in this book." -Wall Street Journal

Jessica Speight, an anthropologist in 1960s London, is at the beginning of a promising academic career when an affair leaves her a single mother. Anna is delightful-a pure gold baby. But as it becomes clear that Anna is not a normal child, the book circles questions of responsibility, potential, even age, with Margaret Drabble's characteristic intelligence and wit. Told from the point of view of Jess's fellow mothers,The Pure Gold Baby is a movingly intimate look at the unexpected transformations at the heart of motherhood.
