Kathryn Edin has a new book coming out!

about unwed fathers. This is my opportunity to tell you guys that 2008′s Promises I Can Keep: Why Poor Women Put Motherhood Before Marriage, by Edin and Maria Kefalas, is probably the best book I’ve read on contemporary marriage and family life. It’s been incredibly illuminating for my work at the pregnancy center. It’s also very moving, and you can really tell that Edin and Kefalas lived with the women they write about, shared the same neighborhoods and built relationships there.
