Glitter and Glue

Genre: Memoir; Author: Kelly Corrigan; Publisher: Ballantine Books

Corrigan’s cockeyed optimist of a father, the main subject of her 2008 memoir, The Middle Place, is her family’s sparkly show pony. But her no-nonsense mother, Mary, is its sturdy workhorse. Mary gets her own tribute in Glitter, in which Corrigan recalls a trip to Australia in her 20s and the nannying job she took when her money ran out, caring for kids who had just lost their mom. There Corrigan gained a new appreciation of Mary — and while her insights aren’t earth-shattering, they’re compelling. B+
