Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author of How Stella Got Her Groove Back and Waiting to Exhale is back with the inspiring story of a woman who shakes things up in her life to find greater meaning.
In I Almost Forgot About You, Dr. Georgia Young's wonderful life - great friends, family, and successful career - aren't enough to keep her from feeling stuck and restless.

Like Waiting to Exhale and How Stella Got Her Groove Back, I Almost Forgot About You will show legions of listeners what can happen when you face your fears, take a chance, and open yourself up to life, love, and the possibility of a new direction.

Critic Reviews

"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 best-selling author of The Joy Luck Club and The Valley of Amazement)
"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 best-selling author of Bad Feminist and An Untamed State)
"The only thing better than reading a Terry McMillan novel is hearing her deliver one of her own works.... Listeners will feel sad, joyful, and amused - and may be tempted to replicate Georgia's quest in their own lives." ( AudioFile)

I Almost Forgot About You

I gave this book 2 stars bc it seems to have a good storyline from the synopsis. Honestly, the narration was so bad I could not listen beyond the second chapter. I am an avid fan of Ms. McMillan's writing. On the other hand her voice is worse than finger nails grating on a chalk board. I want my credit back, and then I will purchase the ebook to read. Ms. McMillan no disrespect, you are an amazingly talented writer. Please leave narrating to the experts. You don't do your book justice. Submitted with honesty, love and much respect.
