Who's Publishing What: Knocked Down

Award-winning author, journalist and editor Aileen Weintraub writes a brand-new, tug-at-your-heartstrings memoir titled Knocked Down that you won't want to miss. 

Her new book details Weintraub's struggles as a young pregnant woman grappling with her father's death, a high-risk pregnancy and a failing marriage. While on doctor-mandated bed rest, she determines she must make a choice: to run away at the first sign of trouble like she always has, or to stay and fight for the newfound family she's building. 

Within her memoir, Weintraub offers heartfelt honesty and wisdom regarding death, family, the courage it takes to leave as well as the courage it takes to stay. 

“Knocked Down poignantly, and often hilariously, reminds us that no one is exempt from life’s unexpected curveballs," says Nava Atlas, author of Secret Recipes for the Modern Wife
