In a coming of age memoir about a woman who loved being a girl and the things that made her finally grow up, Kelly Corrigan brilliantly explores the "middle place" between childhood and adulthood, and how one woman made the leap to the other side.
"The thing you need to know about me," she begins, "is that I am George Corrigan's daughter, his only daughter." Intertwining her own story with that of her larger-than-life, Irish-American, born-salesman father, Corrigan illustrates an unbelievably powerful and healing father/daughter relationship which evolves as they both must battle cancer.
Uplifting without shying away from the realities of illness, Corrigan's highly personal story examines what it means when the one person who has been your source of strength is in need of some himself, and that bittersweet "in between" moment when you're a devoted wife and mother, but you'll always be daddy's girl.

Kelly Corrigan is a newspaper columnist and photographer and author of several New York Times bestsellers. She lives in the San Francisco Bay area with her husband and their two daughters.From AudioFile:
Alternating between childhood reminiscences and present-day events, this engaging memoir of growing up in a small town evokes an OUR TOWN sensibility, which will leave listeners amused, sympathetic, and occasionally teary. When Kelly, a young mother of two small children, and her beloved, larger-than-life father are simultaneously diagnosed with cancer, listeners will quickly become involved with the events that follow. Tavia Gilbert's performance fully captures Corrigan's youthful exuberance, shock, and evolving maturity as she contends with doctors, chemotherapy, and the fear of leaving her children motherless and losing her father. Her father's boisterous energy and expansive can-do personality are also brought vividly to life. This performance will especially resonate with anyone who has ever experienced the ups and downs of a cancer diagnosis.
