About this item

When Dan, a writer with a passion for underground comics, and Bekah, a potter dedicated to traditional Japanese ceramics, met, they swiftly fell in love. “Of all the women I’ve ever met,” Dan told a friend, “she’s the first one who felt like family.” But while preparing for the birth of their first child at Christmastime, tragedy struck. What should have been an occasion for celebration instead marked the beginning of a decade-long odyssey that tested their marriage to its limits. In prose as elegant and unadorned as his wife’s pottery, Raeburn recounts their lives as they clashed and clung to each other through a string of unsuccessful pregnancies. And he tells the moving story of finally, joyfully, becoming parents together. Based on Raeburn’s acclaimed New Yorker essay, Vessels is an unforgettable love story and a powerful portrait of a marriage cemented by the very events that nearly broke it.
