Leave Me

Algonquin Books   2016


Maribeth Klein is your typical overworked, overextended default parent. She's so busy that she doesn't realize she's having a heart attack, and so depended upon by her family that after heart surgery, she cannot recuperate. So she does the unthinkable: packs a bag and leaves. Only then does she begin to understand what she is really running from.

With big-hearted characters who stumble and trip, grow and forgive, Leave Me is about facing our fears, an irresistible novel that confronts the ambivalence of modern motherhood head-on.
