Terry McMillans novels have always been about telling the uncensored truth about friends, family, lovers, and oneself. Through addictively revealing conversations including an instructive one about the sexual prowess of men who made the A listMcMillans narrator is the ideal running commentator on what smart women do to reach the pinnacle of success and what they must do to get the hell out before its too late. Its a story about both reinvention and acceptances, told in McMillans quintessential voice, now even more expansive, prismatically perceptive, and laugh-aloud generous in how we talk about love and all its wonders.
Amy Tan, New York Times bestselling author
of The Joy Luck Club and The Valley of Amazement

The warmth and wisdom we have come to expect from Terry McMillan are on full  display and you wont be able to walk away from Georgia and her exuberant life. This is that thrilling kind of novel that reminds us how sometimes, fairy tales happen when we least expect them, if only we open ourselves to possibility.
Roxane Gray,  New York Times bestselling author of Bad Feminist and An Unnamed State

For nearly thirty years Terry McMillan has been entertaining readers with novels bursting with warmth, humor, and a fearless, tell-it-like-it-is honesty. Beginning with her acclaimed debut novel, Mama, her New York Times bestselling books include Waiting to Exhale, A Day Late and a Dollar Short, The interruption of Everything, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Getting to Happy , Disappearing Acts, and now I Almost Forgot About You, a bold, inspiring story of second chances and next chapters.

Readers will find her signature charm, acerbic wit, and spot-on depictions of modern life and culture on full display.

Host Sabrina Jacobs is the volunteer host and producer of A Rude Awakening, a cultural and political affairs show aired on KPFA. Prior to her own show, she got her start as an intern six years ago and moved on to news reporting.
