"Frank and revealing, this memoir chronicles what it was like for Gail Caldwell to grow up across the decades of the women's movement. She confronts personal turning points, from abortion and illicit love to date rape and alcoholism, up through the #MeToo movement, that led her to see life as a bright precious thing. Another bright precious thing is a young neighborhood girl with whom Gail shares stories. The wise voice and deep feelings for life from Caldwell's bestseller Let's Take The Long Way Home are present again in Bright Precious Thing"-- Provided by publisher.
