7 books of Kelly Corrigan

No matter when and why this comes to your hands, I want to put down on paper how things started with us.
Written as a letter to her children, Kelly Corrigan's Lift is a tender, intimate, and robust portrait of risk and love; a touchstone for anyone who wants to live more fully.
In Lift, Corrigan weaves together three true and unforgettable stories of adults willing to experience emotional hazards in exchange for the gratifications of raising children. Lift takes its name from hang gliding, a pursuit that requires flying directly into rough air, because turbulence saves a glider from "sinking out.­" For Corrigan, this wisdom--­that to fly requires chaotic, sometimes even violent passages--­becomes a metaphor for all of life's most meaningful endeavors, particularly the great flight that is parenting.

After college, armed with a backpack, her personal mission statement, and a wad of traveler’s checks, she took off for Australia to see things and do things and Become Interesting.  But it didn’t turn out the way she pictured it.

And there, in that house in a suburb north of Sydney, 10,­000 miles from the house where she was raised, her mother’s voice . . .
