She and her boyfriend had taken appropriate action, but no matter how hard they tried, it just wasn’t happening. So, with her boyfriend’s consent, the woman begins to look for a donor who can produce a child that resembles her partner, in the hope that physical similarity will make up for biological paternity. But the hunt for the perfect sperm—and the woman’s growing obsession born from disappointment—casts a shadow over their lives too big to endure. From Icelandic author Oddný Eir comes a story of raw desire, the bleakness of hope, and what happens when the most intimate thing is the farthest from reach.
