The Middle Place

Finished this a couple weeks ago but forgot to tell you about it.  It's very different from my usual read, but it was recommended to me by several friends, so I thought I'd give it a try.  The Middle Place, by Kelly Corrigan.  It's a memoir of a woman who battled breast cancer.  At the same time that her father was also battling cancer.  It's honest, and funny, and despite the topic, a pleasure to read.  


  1. This has been on my wish list forever. I have a friend who just recovered from breast cancer (a year after her mom battled it)... I'm sending her an email now- asking if she's heard of this book.

  2. Wonderful! A sweet, touching and funny book-- I was pleasantly surprised at the author's fresh and interesting perspective on motherhood, family, friendships as well as what changes (and what doesn't) when faced with the challenge of cancer. I especially liked the honesty with which it was written-- the author shares her reactions and behavior even when they are less than flattering. It made her story all the more real and enjoyable.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I really love hearing from the people who read this little blog of mine. Thanks for stopping by!
