"Undoubtedly, McMillan's finest novel to date...a delicious family saga...McMillan has an uncanny ability to render family conflict with both humor and compassion...a life-affirming read...a triumph." (The Los Angeles Times) "McMillan's best book yet. She has a true comic gift." (The Village Voice) "[A] slam dunk of a novel...this book is a gift." (New York Newsday) "Touching and funny." (People) "By the last pages you're weeping. You're laughing. You're hooked. It's oh-so-good." (Chicago Tribune) "Nobody does it better." (The Toronto Star)

Terry McMillan was born in Port Huron, Mich., in 1951. She discovered the world of books while working as a shelver at the local library. She received a Bachelor's in Journalism form the University of California, Berkeley, studied film at Columbia University, and enrolled in the Harlem Writer's Guild. After overcoming a substance-abuse problem in the early 1980's, she became an associate professor at the University of Arizona. She was a judge for the National Book Award for Fiction in 1990. McMillan's books include "Disappearing Acts," "Mama," "Waiting to Exhale," and "How Stella Got Her Groove Back;" the latter two were adapted as major motion pictures.
