From the #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Waiting To Exhale
“McMillan paints relationships in joyous primary colors; her novel brims with sexy repartee, caustic humor, and a fluent, assured prose that shines a bright light on her memorable characters. Her very best since Waiting to Exhale.”
– O Magazine
“After almost three decades of success and celebrity, McMillan still knows how to please… Self-discovery, second chances and the importance of family are thematic hallmarks of McMillan’s novels, as is the rich and colorful dialogue that make her books so much fun to read. I Almost Forgot About You checks all the boxes… By novel’s end, you’ll realize what a clever title McMillan has chosen. Georgia’s choices will have readers of a certain age looking at their own lives and agreeing with her that ‘sometimes you know in your heart it’s time for a change.’”
– Washington Post
“McMillan is funny and frank about men, women and sex. Her summaries of Georgia’s marriages and major love connections — ‘this is what he gave me’ — are powerful and poetic.”
– USA Today
“Reading a Terry McMillan book feels like catching up with an old friend… Displaying a range of emotions, I Almost Forgot About You is a book that is important for readers of every age. Before reading this novel, the “you” in the title may be up for discussion, but in the end, it’s clear McMillan wants readers to look within to find the answers they needed all along.”
A rambunctious showcase of the bestselling author’s keen ear for language, clear eye for the give-and-take of sex, love, and commitment, and heartfelt faith in happy endings…There’s no better guide than McMillan for this excursion through early-, middle-, and old-age crises, and no better creator of female characters who refuse to give up on dreaming, or looking back to find the way forward in their noisy, messy, joyous lives.”
“Fans of McMillan will welcome this new addition to her oeuvre. Here is McMillan’s trademark style in full, feisty effect: strong, complicated female characters, energetic prose, and an entertaining, seductive narrative. A heartwarming story that reminds us of the pure joy of believing in love.”
