I Don't Think I'll Have Any
Original title: Je pense que j’en aurai pas
From the gifted pencil of newcomer Catherine Gauthier, this graphic novel discusses a delicate subject with all the lucidity and sensitivity it warrants: the idea that motherhood may not be in the cards you were dealt.
At 37, the protagonist comes to terms with the fact that she will probably never have children. Is it a personal choice, or a life-imposed reality? On the topic of nulliparity, the voices often heard belong to women who choose not to have children.
But what about the others? Those for whom this reality is not a decision or a claim, but rather an unplanned outcome of their journey?
I don’t think I’ll have any chronicles the protagonist’s thoughts on her own reality and gives the floor to women from all walks of life who juggle with the same existential question.
