Maran, Meredith, author.,
Image of item
Meredith Maran had a beautiful life in the San Francisco Bay Area: a joyful marriage to the woman of her dreams, a fulfilling career as a freeland writer, a lovingly restored 100-year-old Victorian, a packed social calender full of good times with family and friends. But then, in the course of a year, her marriage crumbled, her best friend died, her dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, and she found herself broke and broken. Unexpectedly offered the security of a nine-to-five job, she packs the few belongings that fit into her car and moves to Los Angeles to start all over again--at age sixty. When Meredith arrives in La-La Land, she's captivated by her new city, and equally devastated by heartache, loneliness, and self-doubt. No one, she realizes, will create a new life, or a new and improved self, for her. If she wants to find happiness, friends, and love, she's going to have to do it herself.
