Description
Since Terry McMillan s breakout novel "Waiting to Exhale" surged onto the bestseller lists, critics and readers alike have been captivated by her irreverent, hilarious, pitch-perfect tales of women s lives and contemporary issues. With "Interruption of Everything," her sixth novel, McMillan takes on fault lines of midlife and family life, reminds us once again of the redeeming power of friendship, and turns her eye toward the dilemma of how a woman starts to put her own needs higher on the to-do list while not shortchanging everyone else. Marilyn Grimes, wife and mother of three, has made a career of deferring her dreams to build a suburban California home and lifestyle with her husband, Leon. She troubleshoots for her grown kids, cares for her live-in mother-in-law, and keeps tabs on her girlfriends and her own aging mother and foster sister all the while holding down a part-time job. But at forty-four, Marilyn s got too much on her plate and nothing to feed her passion. She feels like she s about ready to jump. She s just not sure where. Highly entertaining, deeply human, a page-turner full of heart and soul, "The Interruption of Everything" is vintage Terry McMillan and a triumphant testament to the fact that the detour is the path, and living life by the numbers never quite adds up."
