Hyperion 12/23/2008. New paperback. Store pick, recommended by Jill: I highly recommend The Middle Place as a selection for your reading group or for any 30-something woman who has ever found that even 'after all the paperwork — a marriage license, a notarized deed, two birth certificates, and seven years of tax returns — clearly indicates that you’re an adult, but all the same, there you are, clutching the phone and thanking God that you’re still somebody’s daughter.' -Jill Hendrix, store owner


Publisher Description


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--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.
