Reviews

"McMillan is a gifted storyteller... The cast of characters enriches the narrative, bringing nuance and clarity to scenes and moving the plot along.... Georgia's story reminds readers who have clocked a lot of living that it's never too late to reconnect and reflect on the past as they craft the future they want."--Fort Worth Star Telegram

"The ripple effects from Terry McMillan's breakthrough in contemporary African-American fiction still influence our daily lives... [I Almost Forgot About You is] much in the same vein of McMillan's other novels that track Black women's journeys through self-discovery."--BLAC Detroit "McMillan is a master at her craft. Without a doubt, this book will be a hit with anyone who feels stuck in life and is ready to make a move. McMillan has done it again. Get this book and read about Georgia's journey. This is another book that should be on everyone's reading list."--The Baton Rouge Advocate "In I Almost Forgot About You, McMillan gives us a story about the possibility of change at any age couched in her customary vivacious prose and lush portrayals of character and relationships. Watching 50-something Georgia slowly reinvent herself and find lasting love along the way is a joy to behold. Here is a deeply felt, deeply courageous novel about the courage to face yourself and your past to discover--and create--the future you want for yourself."--The Root "The reader finds herself torn between gritting her teeth at how right McMillan gets the relationships between best friends, ex-spouses, ex-lovers, parents and children and putting the book down to laugh out loud. Run, don't walk and pick up this exuberant summer read."--BookPage "Nobody does female reinvention better than McMillan... another winner for McMillan's groaning bookshelf of hits."--AARP magazine "McMillan has written an engaging novel with an appealing cast of women... This near-perfect choice for women's book club discussions will prompt arguments of what makes a guy too good to be true. Stock up with multiple copies." -Library Journal (starred review) "Terry McMillan's novels have always been about telling the uncensored truth about friends, family, lovers, and oneself. Through addictively revealing conversations - including an instructive one about the sexual prowess of men who made the A list - McMillan's narrator is the ideal running commentator on what smart women do to reach the pinnacle of success and what they must do to get the hell out before it's too late. It's a story about both reinvention and acceptance, told in McMillan's quintessential voice, now even more expansive, prismatically perceptive, and laugh-aloud generous in how we talk about love and all its wonders."--Amy Tan, New York Times bestselling author of The Joy Luck Club and The Valley of Amazement

"One of my favorite authors since I read Waiting to Exhale in college, Terry McMillan has done it again with this one. Overflowing with her trademark heart and humor, I Almost Forgot About You will inspire you to live a little bigger. I wish Georgia weren't fictional--I would find her and befriend her." --Emily Giffin, #1 New York Times bestselling author of First Comes Love and Something Borrowed "The warmth and wisdom we have come to expect from Terry McMillan are on full display and you won't be able to walk away from Georgia and her exuberant life. This is that thrilling kind of novel that reminds us how sometimes, fairy tales happen when we least expect them, if only we open ourselves to possibility."--Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author of Bad Feminist and An Untamed State
