The Three of Us does.

The Three of Us does. Coles, a correspondent for the London Times, and Godwin, author of the award-winning memoir Mukiwa: A White Boy in Africa, start their New York life in a loft in the trendy downtown meat-packing district, taking forays to hip restaurants, elegant social events and an East Hampton rental they consider somewhat shabby.

Seasoned travelers, successful professionals, Joanna Coles and Peter Godwin arrived in Manhattan ready to make it their oyster-she to be the New York correspondent for a major British newspaper, he to pursue his prize-winning career as a writer and journalist. Of course they were self-absorbed; why come to New York, if not to explore every avenue of self-interest? The news that Joanna is pregnant, however, causes a massive shift in paradigm.

We supper at the garage-like Café Braque, voted New York’s coolest summer hangout, full of slender models nibbling tiny organic mesclun leaves, and I tell Joanna of the varied fare offered by our neighbourhood club.

the London media, Joanna Coles and Peter Godwin set sail for a new life in New York .

After a decade in the London media, Joanna Coles and Peter Godwin set sail for a new life in New York.

There are guides to every aspect and every angle of parenthood-from prenatal to post-college-yet none tells us what couples really and truly feel once confronted with the awesome power of Nature's Course. The Three of Us does.Seasoned travelers, successful professionals, Joanna Coles and Peter Godwin arrived in Manhattan ready to make it their oyster-she to be the New York correspondent for a major British newspaper, he to pursue his prize-winning career as a writer and journalist. Of course they were self-absorbed; why come to New York, if not to explore every avenue of self-interest? The news that Joanna is pregnant, however, causes a massive shift in paradigm. Suddenly they are launched unsteadily but irrevocably toward an altogether new New World.Like a series of mental ultrasounds, The Three of Us consists of alternating diary entries in which, day by day and month by month, Peter and Joanna navigate the uncharted waters of impending parenthood. There is much to discuss-the pros and cons of raising a child in a neighborhood frequented by transvestite prostitutes, for example-yet their reactions are not always on the same page; male and female panic about the Joyous Event, as we learn, can differ sharply. But every parent-to-be, every parent-that-is, will recognize and rejoice in the wonderful, terrible, and sometimes hilarious anxieties that attend the building of a nest. The Three of Us is a candid, refreshing, and reaffirming memoir about coming to terms with a new life.

I've just finished this book, and as a first time mother to be in her 30's (like Joanna) , and an Ex-Rhodesian now living in the U.S. (like Peter), I found it a very interesting read. I enjoy Peter's writing a lot - this book was very different from his usual style. I was mildly uncomfortable that both Peter and Joanna seem to be very critical of everyone they meet or know - I'd feel like I was under a microscope if I had to meet them in real life. They also seem miserable a lot of the time, no matter where they go. To read their criticisms of people and places was amusing in the beginning, because I also have a dry sense of humor, but by the time I'd finished the book I was left with a sense of unease - these two don't seem very happy with each other or their life choices. Also too much 'name dropping' - that irritated me - I don't care what Puff Daddy does with his free time. I am looking forward to reading Peter's new book though, if it's as good as Mukiwa I won't be dissapointed.

This light hearted look at the processes required to give birth in the New York also provided us with forwarning of the costs, bureaucracy and personalities that are inevitably encountered along the way.

This is a quick, fun read. I had read "When a Crocodile Eats the Sun" and loved it, so I wanted to see what else Peter Godwin had written. I wasn't necessarily expecting a book like this, but I really enjoyed it. He and his now-wife, Joanna Coles, also a writer, take turns describing their experiences during her pregnancy but also their experiences living in Manhattan as foreigners. Probably anyone who knows NYC, as well as Brits and also anyone who's been pregnant, can relate to the story. They both have great senses of humor and keen observational skills. It's well-written but lighthearted. I will probably read more of Godwin's books in the future.

Well worth adding to my collection of Peter Godwin books

I still haven't finished "The Three of Us" but felt compelled to write my opinion as soon as possible. In fact I'm taking my time to read it because I really don't want it to end. I am also British and, like Peter and Joanna (or used to) live here in the West Village with my British husband. My delight is to read that two fellow Brits frequent the same supermarkets, bars, shops and even use the same health club as I. The fact that they are having a baby is thrilling to me as I have been fretting over starting a family myself and feel better knowing that they have gone through this transition with humor, patience and great tales of their day to day events that occur in this mad crazy city. On completion of this book I fully intend to purchase Peter Godwin's "Mukiwa, A White Boy in Africa". It's just a pity that they don't live in the Village anymore as I would of loved to have ran into the three of them.

Maybe I didn't get it since I am not a New Yorker. I don't really care that this couple wasn't married, but the lack of love between them was such a turnoff. Peter seemed to have a hard time believing that he had something to do with the pregnancy at all...he kept saying how he was being dragged to doctors and forced to do this and that....My conclusion is that not all writers should write....
