Staff Book Review: Tell Me More

I can’t remember why I placed a hold on Tell Me More, but I’m happy that I did. On the dust jacket it cites the Huffington Post, who call her “the poet laureate of the ordinary.” This book evoked all sorts of responses from me; I laughed, I cried, I sent photos of passages to friends. It was the recounting of experiences in life that provide suggestions about how to handle heartbreaks and joy (more)

I can’t remember why I placed a hold on Tell Me More, but I’m happy that I did.

It was the recounting of experiences in life that provide suggestions about how to handle heartbreaks and joys that a reader might encounter in their own life. I plan to re-visit it.

Kelly Corrigan lost two people in her life, her dad and her best friend. Through 12 essays, she picks themes we can all identify - say I love you, I know, I don't know and I was wrong to name a few. Two subjects I am always dealing with all the time - no words at all and no. I am finding that I should listen more and you learn more. Saying no - this is one that many of us, people pleasers are guilty of - doing something we do not want to do and complaining about later. Refreshingly honest about being a mom, daughter, wife and best friend, I enjoyed this book.

A beautifully human account of losing a father but also about grief, friendship and the power of listening. Her voice is relatable and familiar. I loved seeing myself reflected in this book, and feeling like I am not the only one with these struggles.
