Eleonora Mazzoni is an Italian actress. Her first novel, Le difettose (2012) concerns infertility, motherhood and new reproductive technologies.

Karine Reysset is an emerging young French novelist whose work explores alternative yet realistic versions of motherhood in which experiences of mothering do not conform to those expected by narrators, protagonists - and readers.
