Editorial Reviews

Review

“McMillan brings her signature wit and wisdom to It’s Not All Downhill From Here. . . . [She] has a gift for creating characters who face serious problems and still have the ability to laugh at themselves. . . . If getting older is this joyful, despite the painful losses, bring it on.”—O: The Oprah Magazine

“I couldn’t put this book down. Not only would I recommend it to others, but I already handed it off to my mom for her to read next.”BuzzFeed

“The novel skillfully renders the bonds between multiple generations of women. . . . It’s Not All Downhill From Here is a funny and honest portrait of a woman, late in life, finding second chances. Like a time-tested friendship, the novel comforts.”San Francisco Chronicle

“McMillan proves once again that she is a skilled master at writing dialogue for strong, intelligent women who know how to laugh in the face of tragedy instead of being consumed by it.”—Associated Press

“A hopeful and hilarious novel that women of all ages can relate to.”—Travel & Leisure

“[A] warm, winning novel.”—AARP

“Lively, perceptive . . . McMillan writes with a staggering depth of feeling, credibly capturing the characters’ emotions as she unpacks their interpersonal conflicts. This delightful novel balances inspiration for renewal with the hard facts of aging.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“This is a story of the power of women and the inspiring lives they lead.”—She Reads

“This baldly honest, laugh-out-loud story . . . will remind you of just how healing friendship can be.”Good Housekeeping

“A deeply moving book that gently balances the realities—both personal and societal—of aging with a hopeful message: It’s never too late to change how you’re living your life.”—Salon

“This is another winner from McMillan.”BookPage
