Lipsticks applied, novels read, imperfect cakes baked-such memories are recalled with crystalline perfection (J. C. Hallmann, Brooklyn Rail) in Sarah McColl's breathtaking testimonial to the joy and pain of loving well. When her mother, Allison, was diagnosed with cancer, McColl dropped everything-including her on- the-rocks marriage-to return to the family farmhouse and fix elaborate meals in the hope of nourishing her back to health. In thoughtful and finely crafted prose (Martha Anne Toll, NPR .org) McColl reveals Allison to be an extraordinary woman of infinite love for her unruly brood of children. Mining her dual losses with humor and charm (Rachel Kong, New York Times Book Review) to confront her identity as a woman, McColl walks lightly in the footsteps of the woman who came before her. A gorgeous, painful, exhilarating debut (Kirstin Valdez- Quade), Joy Enough is an essential guide to clinging fast to the joy left behind, for readers of Ann Hood and Jenny Offill.
