Innocent, a Broad by Ann Leary
Book DescriptionWhen Ann Leary and her husband, then unknown actor-comedian Denis Leary, flew to London in the early nineties for a brief getaway during Ann's second trimester of pregnancy, neither anticipated the adventure that was in store for them. The morning after their arrival, Ann's water broke as they strolled through London's streets. A week later their son, Jack, was born weighing only two pounds, six ounces, and it would be five long months before mother and son could return to the States.In the meantime, Ann became an unwitting yet grateful hostage to Britain's National Health Service -- a stranger in a strange land plunged abruptly into a world of breast pumps and midwives, blood oxygen levels, mad cow disease, and poll tax riots. Desperately worried about the health of her baby, Ann struggled to adapt to motherhood and make sense of a very different culture. At once an intimate family memoir, a lively travelogue, and a touching love story, An Innocent, a Broad is utterly engaging and unforgettable.

Long Weekend, Paperback (April 2006)View all books by Ann Leary
Funny, moving account of three months in London which changed three lives forever, following the premature arrival of baby Jack, by wife of comedian and film star Denis. Affectionate take on the Brits: why a consultant goes from Mr to Dr to Mr; the filthy taste of Lucozade and weird but ultimately - to Ann's mind - successful workings of the NHS.
