Read Tell Me More: Stories about the 12 Hardest Things I'm Learning to Say Online Free - A warm, insightful look at the twelve phrases that strengthen and sustain our relationships, from the New York Times bestselling author of Glitter and Glue and The Middle Place
"The poet laureate of the ordinary."--The Huffington Post
In "I Don't Know," Corrigan wrestles to make peace with uncertainty, whether it's over expected invitations that never come or a friend's agonizing infertility. In "No," she admires her mother's ability to set boundaries, her liberating willingness to be unpopular. In "Tell Me More," she learns something important about listening from a facialist named Tish. And in "I Was Wrong," she comes clean about her disastrous role in a family fight--and explains why saying sorry may not be enough. With refreshing candor, a deep well of empathy, and her signature desire to understand "the thing behind the thing," Corrigan swings in this insightful book between meditations on life with a preoccupied husband and two mercurial teenage daughters to profound observations on love and loss.
In channeling the characteristically streetwise, ever-relatable voice that has defined Corrigan's work, Tell Me More is a meaningful, touching take on the power of the right words at the right moment to change everything.

While I would not have normally read this autobiography I am so glad I did. I loved the heart felt way that the author places it all out there for us to do with as we will. I would not really have considered this a self help book until I realized that it had done more for me than most of the peop...

Thank you to NetGalley and Random House Publishing for an e-ARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion. I've read everything by Kelly Corrigan, but this is my favorite. I kept thinking that maybe it came to me at a time I needed it, but really, I think this book will be one of the few I...

A funny, irreverent, and often poignant examination of motherhood, friendship, the grief of losing a parent, and the shock of crashing head first into the body's frailty. Highly recommended for fans of Anne Lamott.

The author's chapter titled Yes is a list of things she will always say yes to. One of the items on my Yes list? Reading Kelly Corrigan's books.
I am now three for three with loving her books. I can't remember how I came across her memoir The Middle Place a few years ago but it was a revelation,...

This was a wonderful book by an author that I didn’t know until I went to the Random House event in New York a month ago. We were given an advanced copy of this book. I’m not sure I would have noticed it on my own but now that I have met Kelly Corrigan and read this book, I will go back and read...

The chapters about th...
