Rosalie Rayner and her husband John Watson conducted experiments on hundreds of babies to prove behaviourist principles of nurture over nature. With Behave, Andromeda Romano-Lax offers a fictional biography of Rosalie, a woman whose lab work is now widely repudiated but who in her time was at the cutting edge of parenting psychology. Both moving and horrifying, Behave is a thought-provoking and compelling novel about the meaning of motherhood.
