Praise

“That she is so candidly aware of her own shortcomings . . . makes the journey of discovery with her great fun.”USA Today
 
“Kelly Corrigan wrote the book—well, make that four—on the heart-tugging joyride that happens in real life. Whether she’s being diagnosed with cancer in her thirties or watching her bigger-than-life father beat cancer or wryly observing other family members as well as herself, Corrigan’s books are inspiring as well as so much fun to read.”Parade

“With heartfelt humor and penetrating insight, Corrigan uses the pain, anguish, failure, and occasional successes in her life to explore the vital connection between the words we say and the relationships we develop, both with the people around us and ourselves. Punctuated with her signature warmth and unflinching honesty, her introspective musings gush with empathy for every partner, parent, child, or friend who has said the wrong thing at the wrong time. At times laugh-out-loud funny but overwhelmingly bittersweet, this brief book spans time and experience to drive home a seemingly simple but significant message: finding the right words is a lifelong journey. Other phrases include ‘I Love You’ and ‘No Words at All.’ Moving and deeply personal, Corrigan’s portraits of love and loss urge readers to speak more carefully and hold on tighter to the people they love.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“This book is beautiful. It’s funny and real and fearless and deep in a way that made me grateful it exists.”—Judd Apatow
 
Tell Me More, a memoir so beautifully honest in its depiction of love and loss, transformed me.”—Imbolo Mbue, New York Times bestselling author of Behold the Dreamers

Tell Me More is a testament to the idea that the things we say matter, that our words have the power to comfort and uplift, empower and inspire. Kelly Corrigan takes on all the big, difficult questions here, with great warmth and courage. As life unfolds, this is a book I will go back to again and again.”—Glennon Doyle

“It is such a comfort just knowing that Kelly Corrigan exists: she is somehow both wise and self-deprecating; funny but unafraid of pain; frank but gentle. She is the sister/mother/best friend we all wish we could have—and because of this big-hearted book, we all get to.”—Ariel Levy, author of The Rules Do Not Apply

“With full-bodied humor and radical sensitivity, Kelly Corrigan transforms the mundane pain of life into a necessary spiritual text of sorts, one that reminds us that we have the right to grieve but the obligation to be grateful. This book will remind you that you are human—and of the fragile loveliness of being so.”—Lena Dunham
