What I Thought I Knew

book cover imageAt 44 years old, playwright Alice Eve Cohen feared the worst when she discovered a lump in her abdomen. Several months and misdiagnoses later, Cohen found out that she wasn't dying, but was rather--to her utter astonishment--six months pregnant.

What I Thought I Knew is Cohen's chronicle of how her life changed when she discovered she was in the middle of a high-risk pregnancy, one further complicated by inadequate insurance coverage and her relationship with her much younger boyfriend. Blackly funny and astoundingly candid, What I Thought I Knew was selected as one of Oprah Magazine's 25 Best Books for Summer.
