GETTING TO HAPPY by Terry McMillan
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 7, 2010

THE INTERRUPTION OF EVERYTHING by Terry McMillan
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: July 19, 2005

A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT by Terry McMillan
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Jan. 15, 2001

"Great storytelling with one catch: no plot. But McMillan's trademark earthiness and wonderful dialogue more than compensate. This bestselling author (How Stella Got Her Groove Back, 1996, etc.) has a rare gift for creating living, breathing people on the page."
A great big family with "nothing in common except blood." Read full book review >
HOW STELLA GOT HER GROOVE BACK by Terry McMillan
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 1, 1996

 McMillan (Waiting to Exhale, 1992, etc.) takes it easy with this tossed-together tale of a 42-year-old black, female professional who falls for a young Jamaican cook. Read full book review >

Released: June 1, 1992
