Blurb About the Book:

What makes Womb most unique is the unusual narrator. Set in the city and suburbs of Baltimore, Womb is narrated from the point of view of a child still in utero.

He describes his own reality inside the womb, his connection to the collective consciousness, and also narrates (through his own perspective) the drama of his mother’s life as she deals with her pregnancy, friends, family and work.
​​Womb has been compared to Room by Emma Donoghue in style, as well as The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. Womb Relese Day was March 21, 2017.

Advance Praise for Womb: a novel in stories

“An utterly unique look at the world from the most unlikely vantage point. In 
Womb, Goodman has created a humorous, thoughtful, unexpected narrator who is wise beyond his years.”
                         – Jennifer Miller, author of The Heart You Carry Home

“Wild, wacky and engagingly original, Womb will take you on a journey whose destination is nothing short of Life—with a capital L.”
– Yona Zeldis McDonough, author of The House On Primrose Pond

“There is real suspense in this brave book and more than one surprise. So, suspend your disbelief and let the lad talk.” 
                         – Ron Tanner, author of Missile Paradise

“In Womb: a novel in utero, Eric D. Goodman explores the paradox between what we know innately about love and what we’ve forgotten in our attempts and mistakes to cherish each other. It is a tenderhearted story that’s laced with grace.”
                          – Jen Grow, author of My Life As A Mermaid

“Eric D. Goodman’s absorbing new novel, Womb, is about a high-risk pregnancy—in more ways than one—told from the fetus’s point of view. The narrator is full of wisdom and goodwill, which we understand to be our birthright, but it’s his father, Jack, whose character and courage burst from the pages like … well, like an infant from the womb. Eric D. Goodman is a talented storyteller.”
Charles Rammelkamp, author of Mata Hari: Eye of the Day and American Zeitgeist

“Eric D. Goodman’s Womb: a novel in utero is unique. In Goodman’s telling, the zygote—and later the embryo and still later the fetus—is blessed with the wisdom of the ages, which he fears he will lose upon birth. As he watches his parents and people around them cope with his existence, he worries about their life choices. He yearns to impart to them his wisdom and is determined that after birth he will remember everything he now knows. Written with sophistication and poetry, Womb surpasses Goodman’s earlier writing in the sheer beauty of the prose and the suspense that unnerves the unborn protagonist.” – Tom Glenn, author of No-Accounts and Last of the Anamese
