I’m a child of impossibility: both my parents died before I was born. But impossibility is the first step to invention, and those who chose me shield me from the foggy sun. We survive, impossibly.

In December 2018, a woman who received a uterus transplanted from a deceased donor gave birth to a healthy child. Uterine transplants from living donors have succeeded in the past; at least 11 babies have been born this way since 2013. From death came life, and so it was that Arizona Jonson was inspired to write this story of impossibilities.
