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 Who Asked You? With millions of copies sold around the world, McMillan’s work has transcended age, race, and class to make her one of the most beloved authors in publishing today.
McMillan brings us I Almost Forgot About You, a bold, inspiring story of second chances and next chapters. Readers will find McMillan's signature charm, acerbic wit, and spot-on depictions of modern life and culture on full display, and her lead character, Dr. Georgia Young, will soon find her place among McMillan’s best-loved. When Dr. Young decides to make some major changes in her life, quitting her job as an optometrist, and moving house, she finds herself on a wild journey that may or may not include a second chance at love.
