Kelly Corrigan on her new memoir Glitter and Glue
-------------------------------------------------

Glitter and Glue I’m Irish. That must be where the luck comes from, the luck required to find a publisher after
filling diaries and journals for thirty years, first in a gingham wonderland from Sears, then in a dorm room in
Virginia, finally in a fixer-upper near Oakland, California.

My first book, The Middle Place, was about my father, Greenie, who was very sick at the same time that I was very sick.
Next, in 2010, I tried to capture what it has been to my daughters’ mother in Lift. Finally, with Glitter and Glue, my
mother gets her due. Now, Mary Corrigan is a complicated topic, as most mothers are. Think stoic, gritty, unbending;
one part saint, two parts sergeant. Or, as she put it, “Your father’s the glitter, but I’m the glue. It takes both,
Kelly.”

I hope that somehow, given the toppling pile of books on your nightstand, you can find an evening to spare for this
story of how I came to wonder who my mom was before I arrived, what motherhood had done to her and who she had become
since I left home. Parenthood is so distorting; we all deserve a second, longer look.
