"A memoir of an indelible life full of incredible adven-tures."--Booklist
"Pointedly astute...As Pollen illustrates in her sharp, nearly wry voice, it is not our memories that will lead us to an understanding of the self, but the act of maneuvering among them, as though they are a crowd blocking the self from view."--Zyzzyva
In Meet Me in the In-Between, journalist, bestselling novelist, and former fashion designer Bella Pollen takes us on a captivating journey of a life, from her unorthodox childhood in Upper Manhattan through early marriage to a son of an alluring Mafioso, to the dusty border towns of Mexico where she falls in with a crowd of Pink Floyd-loving smugglers. Throughout all, Bella grapples in-tently with relationships, motherhood, career ups and downs, and a pathological fear of being boxed in. Interwoven with exquisite passages of graphic memoir by award-winning illustrator Kate Boxer, this is a tender, funny, and honest story of one woman's determination to keep looking for the extraordinary in an ordinary life."A poignant, beautifully written memoir."--Mail on Sunday (UK) "Captivating."--Tatler "Funny, startling and unexpectedly poignant."--The New Statesman "Frequently disturbing, often very funny. Pollen has a gift for playing with her readers, teasing them, shocking them, having fun with their assumptions before shaking them out of their complacency to reveal underlying and often very moving profundities. . . unforgettable."--Daily Telegraph (UK)
