All My Patients Are under the Bed: Memoirs of a Cat Doctor - Paperback

2005, ISBN: 9780671554507

Hardcover, ID: 162282962

New York U. S. A.: Viking Adult. As New in Near Fine dust jacket 2005. First Edition. Hardcover. Marfree, acidfree F/Fine 1stEd; no names, not marked-in, underscored, clearance or discard. Mails from NYC usually within 12 hours. ; 9 x 6.4 x 1.3 inches; 365 pages; \nOnline Rev: Terry McMillan's sixth novel, The Interruption of Everything, is every bit as enthralling and empowering as her earlier hits Waiting to Exhale and A Day Late and a Dollar Short. However, as McMillan matures as an author, her characters follow suit, which leads her to a wiser, more introspective lead character in the form of Marilyn Grimes. Our reward, as readers, is a tale of midlife crisis, mixed with family and personal drama, all told in the witty, honest, and inspiring style we've come to expect from this seasoned storyteller. As Marilyn approaches middle-age, we follow her struggle to discover herself outside the constraints of a passionless marriage, a demanding family and an ever-growing list of dreams deferred. With three children in college, a husband who suffers from destructive professional and personal inertia, a demanding mother-in-law, a senile mother and a drug-addicted sister, Marilyn has more on her plate than she expected at this stage of the game. Torn between taking care of her friends and family and attending to her own needs, she's faced with choices, like deciding to finish her graduate degree, that never before seemed hers to make. Along the way, supporting characters like Marilyn's feisty little niece and supportive-yet-opinionated best friends Paulette and Bunny add humor and depth to our heroine's character. And as always, McMillan does a flawless job of incorporating humor into even the most traumatic situations, as evidenced by a scene in which Marilyn ends up babysitting her hairdresser's children while waiting twelve hours for new braids. ("At three, Blue has to make a run. Orange has to go to the bank to get a money order. I ask Lexus to find me a Pamper and I take the baby in the bathroom. ") Warm and witty, sincere and heartfelt, The Interruption of Everything is sure to delight McMillan devotees and attract a host of new fans. --Gisele Toueg From Publishers Weekly Bestseller McMillan (A Day Late and a Dollar Short) does what she does best in her long-awaited sixth novel. Her candid, spirited narrator is Marilyn Grimes, a 40-something wife and mother who's beginning to feel unappreciated by her family and underwhelmed by her 25-year marriage. With her three kids in college, Marilyn works part-time at a crafts store, feeds her neglected creative muse with various artsy projects, and jaws with her friends in their good-natured regular "Private Pity Party. " Having always been there for others--her engineer husband, Leon; her drug-addicted sister, Joy, and Joy's two kids; her live-in mother-in-law, Arthurine; and her mother, Lovey--Marilyn wonders what it would be like to think of her own needs for once. Meanwhile Leon's questioning his professional future, his marriage and his fashion sense (he buys a Harley and starts dressing "like a chubby old hip-hopper") . As they seek their own solutions, Marilyn discovers she's pregnant, Lovey shows signs of Alzheimer's, Arthurine begins dating, Joy struggles to get sober and Marilyn's ex-husband reappears and awakens old feelings. With her trademark ability to write thought-provoking tales inspired by the lives and loves of contemporary African-American women, McMillan offers another novel sure to resonate with readers grappling with the questions Marilyn poses to herself. © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed. ., Viking Adult, 2005, New York, NY, U.S.A.: Silhouette, 1989. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good. # 311 in the series ON WINGS OF DREAMS Anthropologist Jeannie Donnelly had come home. New Mexico was the land of her people, the Natuwa Indians. And her federal grant for an anthology of Native American songs and chants was the stepping stone to her grandmother's legacy. For Jeannie Donnelly had come home to right a fifty-year-old wrong-and to assume her rightful place as medicine woman of her tribe. Museum curator Michael O'Shea loved the land, the people and the magic of the Southwest. And he knew he would love Jeannie, a woman who shared his roving spirit, a woman who eased his agonizing loneliness. But he didn't know how close her quest would come to breaking his heart ... or the painful choice that could tear them apart forever. Secrets ... "Sometimes," he continued after several long moments, "I get the feeling you're about to tell me something, and then you clam up." She tried to chuckle, but it sounded flat even to her. "Are you?” "Like what?" He turned to her, blue eyes meeting her own black ones. "I don't know. You tell me." She closed her eyes. He can see into me, she thought. The concept was frightening. She could do it easily with others. But she'd been trained. She'd never had someone do it to her. He could see. She lay back, propping her body on her elbow, setting the drink on the hearth. "I'm a woman with a mission," she said quietly. "And you're not talking about your anthology, are you?" he asked.
