A nice ex-library copy with usual stamps and markings. Skinned areas on front and rear boards where dust wrapper was once attached to book. Unclipped dust wrapper, faintly edgeworn, has no library markings.; The author's life changed after the publication of her first memoir, 'Are You Somebody?' This memoir "begins her story from the moment her life began to change in all manner of ways-subtle, radical, predictable, and unforeseen. It is a provocative meditation on the 'crucible of middle age'-a time of life that forges the shape of the years to come, that clarifies and solidifies one's relationships to friends and lovers (past and present), family and self. It is also a story of good fortune chasing out bad-of an accidental harvest of happiness.

'Almost There', like its predecessor, is a crystalline reflection of a singular character, utterly engaged in life. Intelligent, thoughtful, hilarious, fierce, moving, generous, and most of all, full of surprises."
