9780091936020: The Middle Place

For Kelly Corrigan, family was everything. At thirty-six, she had a marriage that worked, two funny, active kids, and a weekly newspaper column. Yet even as a thriving adult, Kelly still saw herself as the daughter of garrulous 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 - and gets the diagnosis no one wants to hear. 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.

Review:

"How can a book be both unbelievably moving and hilarious? Kelly Corrigan has achieved it. Her writing is brilliant, her honesty commendable. The Middle Place is heart-breaking, life-affirming and a captivating celebration of love" (Jill Mansell)

"If you ever forget what really matters in life, read this book" (Stephanie Calman, author of CONFESSIONS OF A BAD MOTHER)

"I loved The Middle Place. It isn't a book about cancer, it's about love. It's also very funny - I really couldn't put it down" (Katie Fforde)

"Funny [and] irresistibly exuberant" ( O, The Oprah Magazine)

"Moving, funny and thought-provoking, this is a gem ... A must-read tale of love and hope" ( Woman)
