Glitter and Glue: A Memoir

Any reader will discover in this book the importance found in those things that do, in fact, happen when you leave the house.

This is the ordinary brilliance of Kelly Corrigan, the irresistible cocktail of lyrical writing and solid, useful insight that has already rocketed "Glitter and Glue" to the No. 2 spot on the New York Times best-seller list; the everyday magic that makes her legions of devoted readers hope that it won't be her last.

Corrigan writes with warmth and delicate humor about what in another time might have been called women’s concerns — raising children, marriage, female friendships, grown-up relationships with parents — much as Anna Quindlen and Anne Lamott , two writers with whom she often shares a stage.
