Tell Me More: Stories about the 12 Hardest Things I'm Learning to Say

In "I Don't Know," Corrigan wrestles to make peace with uncertainty, whether it's over expected invitations that never come or a friend's agonizing infertility. In "No," she admires her mother's ability to set boundaries, her liberating willingness to be unpopular. In "Tell Me More," she learns something important about listening from a facialist named Tish. And in "I Was Wrong," she comes clean about her disastrous role in a family fight--and explains why saying sorry may not be enough. With refreshing candor, a deep well of empathy, and her signature desire to understand "the thing behind the thing," Corrigan swings in this insightful book between meditations on life with a preoccupied husband and two mercurial teenage daughters to profound observations on love and loss.In channeling the characteristically streetwise, ever-relatable voice that has defined Corrigan's work, Tell Me More is a meaningful, touching take on the power of the right words at the right moment to change everything....

  • Melissa McGowan

    I absolutely loved this book.

  • Leigh

    KC has come to be one of my favorite authors. I feel a kindred spirit in her writing and this book lived up to my expectations. I especially liked the part about her Grandma and the regrets she has. I’m sure that was uncomfortable to write but Kelly, if you’re reading this - please know that by sharing those raw details of how you fucked up you are helping others to avoid making those same mistakes. What a gift to hear it from you and not have to learn the hard way myself. Thank you! This book i ...more

    "Dearly beloved, we are gathered together to get through this thing called life."

    I've never read a Kelly Corrigan book before, despite seeing her in Vermont at Booktopia one year. Her books always struck me as ones with themes that I didn't want to address. Difficult themes; life, relationships, family. Death. Lots of death. And this book had all those and more. When I was at the library and I stood and read three pages and didn't want to stop, I knew this book was the right book for me at the r

    I just can't get enough of Kelly Corrigan's writing. Every story in this book made me laugh, cry and just think. Love, love, love!

  • Esil

    I had never heard of Kelly Corrigan. But I was encouraged to read this book of personal essays when I saw GR friend JanB’s lovely review that described reading Tell Me More as sitting down to talk with a close friend. At the core of the each chapter is Corrigan’s grief over the recent loss of her father and a close friend. But throughout the book there are many anecdotes and lots of relatable self reflections about being a parent, a partner, a daughter, a sibling and a friend. In an understated ...more

  • Stefanie Onieal

    Absolutely loved this book. Her candor and honesty reminded me of another favorite, Nina Riggs. I connected with so much and it felt good to read a book that almost celebrates our flaws.

  • Allison Pickett

    Kelly Corrigan is now an author whose books I will always read. She was completely open about her life, including ugly parts that I would hide. I love to read a book with no filters (this includes no language filters for my more conservative friends!). Kelly tells about the 12 hardest things she's learned to say over the course of a life filled with marriage, kids, sickness, tragedy, happiness, and sadness. Her ability to lay it all on the line and tell the truth about herself is 100% endearing.

  • Lisa

    I just love the way Kelly Corrigan writes. Her sentences have warmth, humor, truth and feeling. I felt much during this audiobook and even cried a few times. I think Kelly makes me cry during every book she has read to me. Kelly writes of her grief over her fathers death as well as her young friend Liz. Mothers especially will appreciate this book.
