The Middle Place

$9.99$2.99

From the publisher: "For Kelly Corrigan, family is everything. At thirty-six, she had a marriage that worked, two funny, active kids, and a weekly newspaper column. But even as a thriving adult, Kelly still saw herself as the daughter of garrulous Irish-American charmer George Corrigan. She was living deep within what she calls the Middle Place--'that sliver of time when parenthood and childhood overlap'--comfortably wedged between her adult duties and her parents' care. But Kelly is abruptly shoved into coming-of-age when she finds a lump in her breast. When George, too, learns that he has late-stage cancer, it is Kelly's turn to take care of the man who had always taken care of her--and to show us a woman who finally takes the leap and grows up."

Kelly wrote the bestselling memoir The Middle Place, which I thoroughly appreciated and still think about weirdly often. In this follow-up, she examines the bond between mothers and daughters. The San Francisco Chronicle calls this "[an] irresistible cocktail of lyrical writing and solid, useful insight."

Tell Me More: Stories About the 12 Hardest Things I’m Learning to Say

I adored this book; I wish I could download it into my brain. Kelly talks in depth about how after her friend Liz was diagnosed with cancer, they both pushed past the surface stuff to forge a powerful and enduring friendship. (The dedication page makes me cry every time: "I wish we could have done this together, Lizzard, though in a way, we sort of did.") This book will make you want to be a better friend, and also give you insight into <em>how</em>. Personal, heartfelt, and really really good.
