What it is about...It’s a crazy idea: trying to name the phrases that make love and connection possible. But that’s just what Kelly Corrigan has set out to do here. In her New York Times bestselling memoirs, Corrigan distilled our core relationships to their essences, showcasing a warm, easy storytelling style. Now, in Tell Me More, she’s back with a deeply personal, unfailingly honest, and often hilarious examination of 12 essential phrases that turn the wheel of life.
What I thought...
This must be the Year of the Memoir for me because this is the second one I have read this year that has been 5 stars...more if I could. Although Tell Me More is more an essay collection, I feel that this is also the story of a life, of love, and of loss. Corrigan tells of the hardest things she is learning to say but they are beautiful words we could all use more of in our lives; I love you, I know, No and Tell Me More. What a wonderful place the world would be if we all read this book and used these phrases more often!
I laughed out loud and cried several times while reading Tell Me More and used quite a few book darts as well-all signs of an excellent book!
“Being in our lives *as they are* is probably one of the most common struggles people have.”
“Like the padre said, life is a mystery to be lived. Live your mystery.”
