Since Terry McMillan's breakout novel Waiting to Exhale surged onto the best seller lists, critics and readers alike have been captivated by her irreverent, hilarious, pitch-perfect tales of women's lives and contemporary issues. With The Interruption of Everything, her sixth novel, McMillan takes on the fault lines of mid-life and family life, reminds us once again of the redeeming power of friendship, and turns her eye toward the dilemma of how a woman starts to put her own needs higher on the to-do list while not shortchanging everyone else.

Marilyn Grimes, wife and mother of three, has made a career of deferring her dreams to build a suburban California home and lifestyle with her husband, Leon. She troubleshoots for her grown kids, cares for her live-in mother-in-law, Arthurine (and elderly poodle, Snuffy), keeps tabs on her girlfriends, Paulette and Bunny, and her own aging mother and foster sister...all the while holding down a part-time job. But at 44, Marilyn's got too much on her plate and nothing to feed her passion. She feels like she's about ready to jump. She's just not sure where.

Highly entertaining, deeply human, a page-turner full of heart and soul, The Interruption of Everything is vintage Terry McMillan, and a triumphant testament to the fact that the detour is the path, and living life by the numbers never quite adds up. Download and start listening now!

    " As always, Terry McMillian delivers. an excellent story about the typical women regardless of color, race etc. how she puts her life on hold to put everyone else's needs first and how unhappy it is making her. "

    " While I did not think this book was up-to-par with "How Stella Got Her Groove Back" or "Waiting to Exhale", I enjoyed it and I TOTALLY identified with Marilyn - not in every way, but in many ways. Some parts of the book were a little slow, but the mid-life "truths" that were addressed kept me reading. "
